Mismatched CDH versions: host has NONE but role expects 6


I'm receiving the following message from my CDH 6.2 installation.  I do see some older posts explaining the issue however as they are old posts, I don't believe they are relevent to this version.


Would anyone know the specifics of what this check does or looks for on RHEL 7 hosts that's specific to Cloudera versions?


Mismatched CDH versions: host has NONE but role expects 6 





I'm having same issue.... everything works fine, but these config warning are on all services in cloudera manager.



@ChineduLB @TCloud This issue is most probably due to Zero Byte var/lib/cloudera-scm-agent/active_parcels.json file available. Please follow the below steps:

1. Stop the agent on this host.
2. Remove both:
3. Start the Agent

Please don't forget to mark this as a solution if resolves the issue.
