@Neeraj Sabharwal I took a closer look at what I typed in before on the ini file and realized I made a typo in the server hostname. I fixed it and got everything installed and working! Thanks so much for your help getting my cluster working. I wouldn't have been able to do it without your support!
On the Ambari server as root
cat id_rsa.pub >> authorized_keys
then copy the authorized_keys to the .ssh/ directory on 2 remote hosts you want to add to your cluster.
Validate from the Ambari server that the password less setup is working on the first attempt it will ask for the password thats normal buy subsequently it shouldn't ask for the ambari root password .
Apart from that the are a couple of checks on the client to add to the cluster eg Firewall,NTP ;SeLinux etc check this doc attached
I followed the steps to the dot!
I still cannot ssh without password.
I copy the id_rsa.pub file to the /root/.ssh of the target host: scp /root/.ssh/id_rsa.pub root@IP:/root/.ssh
then on target host:
Still cannot ssh from my main server, please help!
There is another potential problem. If this is your SECOND attempt after restarting the entire process, there is a BUG.
If this is the second attempt after a successful SSH. Then try the alternative option for manual install. It will work if the agents are running and vi /etc/ambari-agent/conf/ambari-agent.ini
This can be related to the /etc/hosts entries too. Check for the IP addresses and Hostnames of the same nodes in the cluster
Should be aligned correctly, IP of the host-1 should be set in with that host-1 only.
Hi, I am struggling with the ame Problem.
I configured as it was set in the manual and when I try to connect via ssh it is working without password
So I am logged in as root in the Mainserver hadoopmain.hadoop.local
I then enter: ssh firstname.lastname@example.org
And then I am logged on the node1 without being asked for a password.
Nevertheless I a getting the failure:
========================== Creating target directory... ========================== Command start time 2019-02-15 12:12:13 Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-keyex,gssapi-with-mic,password).
