Metron - FULL DEV (Ambari-server issue during provisionning) --> SWITCHING TO QUICK_DEV

Metron - FULL DEV (Ambari-server issue during provisionning) --> SWITCHING TO QUICK_DEV

New Contributor

Hello community, I'm trying to deploy the Metron FULL DEV; ran through the documentation and everything went smoothly during the deployment until the provisionning of Vagrant. I keep getting this error (after multiple execution of vagrant provisionning):

fatal: [node1]: FAILED! => {"changed": false, "cmd": "ambari-server setup -s && touch /etc/ambari-server-configured" , "failed": true, "failed_when_result":true, "rc":0, "stderr": false, "stdout": "skipped, since /etc/ambari-server-configured exists", "stdout_lines": ["skipped, since /etc/ambari-server-configured exists"]}

I have tried to reset the ambari server and didn't want to uninstall it and re-install it since I'm not very familiar with the technology.

I would like to ask the community who has more expertise than me regarding the solution and what needs to be done to solve the issue.

Thanks in advance.

Hello guys, so I decided to deploy a fresh new installation and the error disappeared. Wanted to share with everyone some of the errors I encountered:

- After fresh new install (following documentation)

- Ran: vagrant up

- Got the error: /sbin/mount.vboxsf: mounting failed with the error: No such device

- SOLUTION: vagrant plugin install vagrant-vbguest

- Ran: vagrant up --provision

Now I'm getting the following error:

TASK [ambari_gather_facts : Ask Ambari: cluster_name] **************************

fatal: [node1]: FAILED! => {"changed": false, "failed": true, "msg": "Socket error: [Errno 111] Connection refused to http://node1:8080/api/v1/clusters"}

Looks like the ambari-service didn't start and the error was confirmed in the /var/log/ambari-server/ambari-server.log:

ERROR [main] AmbariServer:929 - Failed to run the Ambari Server Guice provision errors: 1) Error injecting constructor, node1: node1: unknown error at org.apache.ambari.server.controller.AmbariManagementControllerImpl.<init>( at org.apache.ambari.server.controller.AmbariManagementControllerImpl.class( while locating org.apache.ambari.server.controller.AmbariManagementControllerImpl while locating org.apache.ambari.server.controller.AmbariManagementController at org.apache.ambari.server.agent.HeartBeatHandler.<init>( at org.apache.ambari.server.agent.HeartBeatHandler.class( while locating org.apache.ambari.server.agent.HeartBeatHandler

Here are the steps that I did:

- vagrant ssh

- /etc/init.d/ambari-server start (the server was down); same thing for the agent

- vagrant provision

- went back to the ssh session and checked the status of both services:

* /etc/init.d/ambari-server status (running)

*/etc/init.d/ambari-agent status (running)

- when connecting to http://node1:8080 all services were RED

- as the provisioning was progressing and reached the TASK[ambari_gather_facts], the operation continued with the other ambari_gather_facts TASKS

- The provisioning then:

* Deleted the Metron Components from Ambari * Removed the Metron packages * Created local repo with new packages * Re-installed the Metron Packages via Ambari * Started the ambari cluster

- The provisioning threw an error at that step:

Start the ambari cluster] ************************************ fatal: [node1]: FAILED! => {"changed": false, "failed": true, "msg": "Request failed with status FAILED"}

When connecting the web interface: http://node1:8080, here are the statuses of the various services:

* HDFS: Green

* HBase: Green

* ZooKeeper: Green

* Storm: Green

* Kafka: Green

* ElasticSearch: Green

* Kibana: Green

* Metron: Red

Thanks in advance for the help and sorry for being verbose in the post :)
