Can you make sure your machines have access to repository to download packages. Make sure iptables and selinux are disabled on the machine.

Ambari agents running everywhere? SSHless setup. Firewalls configured. Running as the correct user?

Correct permissions on directories and files?

Sometimes a reboot helps.

Can you please check if other components inside /usr/hdp/current are pointing to your hdp version ?

It looks like symlink is broken. Please compare with good node and see if you can fix it.

Hi Kuldeep ,

i see symlinks are broken on 2 machines, and i have only 1 machine where symlinks are good

but required symlinks are not present on good node

how to resolve this issue , sorry for replying late

how come we have unexpected behavior during installation that some symlinks are broken and some are good , its bug in hortonworks installer , what do you think ?

Thanks

I faced this issue two days back and it was little frustrating, but since I didn't had time to debug further therefore I stopped all the services then removed all the hdp components packages and /usr/hdp directory from the node where I was having the issue and ran the "add host" wizard from Ambari UI again. After that installation went well without any issue.

It seems to be an issue with installer at some point which causing this inconsistency in installation process.
