  • Ensure that the host's hostname is configured properly.
  • Ensure that port 7182 is accessible on the Cloudera Manager Server (check firewall rules).
  • Ensure that ports 9000 and 9001 are not in use on the host being added.
  • Check agent logs in /var/log/cloudera-scm-agent/ on the host being added. (Some of the logs can be found in the installation details).
  • If Use TLS Encryption for Agents is enabled in Cloudera Manager (Administration -> Settings -> Security), ensure that /etc/cloudera-scm-agent/config.ini has use_tls=1 on the host being added. Restart the corresponding agent and click the Retry link here.
