Re: Error when trying to install Apache Ranger through Ambari

@Aitor Osa

The error shows that Ranger install is failing due to ranger host not able to communicate to given db host

Need to check below properties: 1) Check the Ranger db host 2) Check whether db gets connected from host were Ranger is to be installed. If not, you will need to provide permissions.

Thanks, the only thing I had to do is put localhost instead of my fqdn. Idk why it works this way but thx! :D

Re: Error when trying to install Apache Ranger through Ambari

here it seems some issue with db setting can you please ranger db config like ranger_jdbc_connection_url and all.

I had this problem, I had Ranger DB set to c6402.ambari.apache.org:6080 and it needed to be c6402.ambari.apache.org. Just had to take the port # off.
