Error installing standalone ambari server

Hi Team,

While trying to install standalone Ambari server on one of the existing edge node. Below is the error I got every time when I ran ambari-server setup command.

SELinux status is 'disabled'

Customize user account for ambari-server daemon [y/n] (n)?

ERROR: Unexpected error 'getpwuid(): uid not found: 55025'

ERROR: Exiting with exit code 1.

REASON: Failed to create user. Exiting.

Also, I don't see UID "55025" in the /etc/passwd and wondering from where it's picking this UID.

Thanks

@awhitter Thanks a lot. Ambari repo file permission was wrong.

Can you please check which user has the permission to read write this file?

# ls -la /etc/yum.repos.d/ambari.repo 
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 304 May 31 17:08 /etc/yum.repos.d/ambari.repo

.

You can verify the same using this Python script"

import os
import pwd
print 'Who Owns it: ' + pwd.getpwuid(os.stat("/etc/yum.repos.d/ambari.repo").st_uid).pw_name

.

Now If do the following:

# useradd 55025
# chown 55025 /etc/yum.repos.d/ambari.repo

.

Then you will see 55025 in the output.
