Launcher ERROR, reason: Main class [org.apache.oozie.action.hadoop.ShellMain], exit code [1]

Launcher ERROR, reason: Main class [org.apache.oozie.action.hadoop.ShellMain], exit code [1]

Hello All,

 

We are trying to implement archival program for HDFS files and I am getting below oozie error.

 

JA018 : Main class [org.apache.oozie.action.hadoop.ShellMain], exit code [1]

 

The Job Browser lists the job as successful but the workflow shows status Kill with the above error.

 

So far the only thing I could come up with is that JA018 in the Oozie documentation is listed as "JA018 is output directory exists error in workflow map-reduce action" but I have no clue what this means. I am giving a new directory for output directory.

 

Can you please help me to get rid of this error ?

 

Thanks,

Priya
