HDP 2.5 Sandbox can't install a service

Explorer

Just downloaded HDP 2.5 Sandbox and tried to install one of existing but not installed services (NiFi) from Ambari UI.

This leads to the following error: 7769-screen-shot-2016-09-19-at-23837-pm.png I've found similar issues mentioned here: https://community.hortonworks.com/questions/50950/ambari-server-wizard-assign-masters-menu-error-occ...

But when I'm trying to change the owner of that directory or even delete and re-create its content (acting as a root) I'm getting the following error:

rm: cannot remove `1': Invalid argument

@Volodymyr Ostapiv

Can you please refer below thread

https://community.hortonworks.com/questions/33127/i-cant-add-new-services-into-ambari.html

It looks like permission issue. Can you please try to change owner of /var/run/ambari-server to the user by which ambari-server daemon is running?

Please do let me know if you need any further help.

@Volodymyr Ostapiv

This is due to an issue in the docker HDP 2.5 Sandbox, which will be addressed with the next Sandbox release.

In the meantime, try the solution in the link below:
