HDP - Error Finalizing HDP upgrade Failed on: Save Cluster State

Expert Contributor

Hello guys,

I'm trying to upgrade from hdp-2.4.0 to hdp-2.6.1

Updated ambari to 2.5 and all went ok, all services are green and all service checks run smoothly .

When I do the express upgrade to hdp-2.6.1 it gives error in the last part .

I've followed this article but when I restart the server it gives this error:


Is there any workaround for this?

Many thanks in advance.

Best regards

Did you try running ambari-server start --auto-fix-database?

Many thanks for your answer... it didn't work but apparently worked with disable database check.
It completed the upgrade at least.

Many thanks!
