Falcon doesn't start up - HDP 2.3.4 Ambari 2.2

Rising Star

Dear Experts,

I am trying to start Falcon on my cluster (HDP-2.3.4.0-3485, Ambari 2.2), but unfortunately it doesn't start up

I get the following message in the ambari error log:

-----

Traceback (most recent call last):

ImportError: No module named properties_file

Checking the /var/log/falcon directory for logs the directory unfortunately is empty ...

Any hint is appreciated!

Thanks & br,

Rainer

This can be closed ... I had 2 HiveServer2 running on different notes as part of a previously failed hive install ... and this totally confused ranger and falcon ... after removing hive and reinstalling it everything is fine now ... thanks for your support!

Did it work before? Did service checka pass before? Did you install Oozie? You may need to reinstall it and falcon clients.

No, unfortunately falcon never worked, oozie though is up and running ...

I would remove Falcon service and try to add it again

This is an old thread started by you. https://community.hortonworks.com/questions/14643/spark-thrift-server.html

Are you using the same cluster?

/var/log/falcon - Empty --> Not a good sign

Delete FALCON and try to add again.

It looks like that your cluster is not setup correctly.
