Getting "500 status code received on POST method for API" in ambari while trying to install Kerberos

Contributor
  • OS: CentOS6.6 on all hosts
  • Ambari version 2.1 & HDP 2.3.0
  • Operation: Installing Kerberos With AD KDC
  • The error I get in Ambari, more precisely in step 3 and while performing Test Client:

500 status codereceived on POST method for API: /api/v1/clusters/HdpCluster/requests

Error message: Server Error
  • Ambari-server log:

backup your Ambari database, go to your Ambari database, delete the old entry in the alert_group table that matches the error.

@Artem Ervits Thank you, this solved part of the problem. However, now I am getting another error (the same 500 status code and still in the same step):

 24 Dec 2015 12:58:35,191  INFO [qtp-client-52] AmbariManagementControllerImpl:3230 - Received action execution request, clusterName=HdpCluster, request=isCommand :true, action :null, command :KERBEROS_SERVICE_CHECK, inputs :{}, resourceFilters: [RequestResourceFilter{serviceName='KERBEROS', componentName='null', hostNames=[]}], exclusive: false, clusterName :HdpCluster

        at org.apache.ambari.server.orm.AmbariJpaLocalTxnInterceptor.invoke(AmbariJpaLocalTxnInterceptor.java:68)

I googled this error, and people propose to include the ambari server as a cluster member host (i.e. have an agent running side-by-side with the ambari server on the same machine). Is this really the unique solution ? I tried adding a new host in the ambari wizard (to add the ambari server itself to the list of hosts), then I got this error while registring the host ... :

INFO 2015-12-24 13:11:20,282 NetUtil.py:59 - Connecting to https://ambari-server.example.com:8440/ca
ERROR 2015-12-24 13:11:20,379 NetUtil.py:77 - [SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed (_ssl.c:590)
ERROR 2015-12-24 13:11:20,380 NetUtil.py:78 - SSLError: Failed to connect. Please check openssl library versions. 

I am running Oracle JDK on the ambari server:

cat /etc/ambari-server/conf/ambari.properties


java.home=/usr/jdk64/jdk1.7.0_67 
server.jdbc.postgres.schema=ambari 
jdk.name=jdk-7u67-linux-x64.tar.gz

Your help is much appreciated !

also for the future, try to tag your posts with more general tags, so instead of ambari-2.1.0, tag with "Ambari" that way we have people following the Ambari topics notified of your questions.

Ok ! Thank you

is your server name really ambari-server.example.com? Confirm by going to /etc/ambari-agent/conf/ambari-agent.ini and check under ambari host property. Set it to whatever the node name is. You can get FQDN of the node by running "hostname -f".

Actually, I changed it. My real FQDN is manager.cluster.mediatvcom

My FQDN is correct, it figures out in [server] section of amabri-agent.ini. While registring I can see this message:

WARNING 2015-12-24 15:24:52,405 NetUtil.py:105 - Server at https://manager.cluster.mediatvcom:8440 is not reachable, sleeping for 10 seconds...

The port 8440 is open, The ambari-agent is collocated with the ambari server, but while registering, the Confirm Hosts step always fails in the Add Host Wizard... Do you think it is related to SSL ? :(

try localhost instead? Also, check the version of openssl package on your OS and confirm with the Ambari version you're using in our guides. If other nodes connect successfully, confirm the openssl version on those hosts matches this host.

rpm -qa | grep openssl
openssl-1.0.1e-42.el6.x86_64

I have this version running on all my hosts.

The documentation says: We should run OpenSSL (v1.01, build 16 or later). So it is fine since 42 > 16. So it should be fine :)

Yes all my nodes run successfully the ambari-agent.

I just upgraded the OpenSSL version running on the ambari server to openssl-1.0.1e-42.el6_7.1.x86_64, but still does not work...

I just figured out, in the last comment raised by @gaurav sharma

we are running into the same issue :(.

it does say in the post you reference that user enabled Oracle JDK 1.8, have you tried that? Here's documentation to change JDK http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/Ambari-2.2.0.0/bk_ambari_reference_guide/content/ch_changin...
