Ranger Admin is failing to Install

Re: Ranger Admin is failing to Install

This issue was resolved. Root cause of the issue was that customer had symlinked /usr/hdp to /opt/hadoop/usr/hdp and as per discussion with Ranger Engg., that apparently is not supported currently. Once, I removed symlink and reverted back to /usr/hdp, issue got fixed.

unlink /usr/hdp

cp -rp /opt/hadoop/usr/* /usr/

rm -rf  /opt/hadoop/usr

@Pardeep check this /usr/hdp/current/ranger-admin/ranger_credential_helper.py: Permission denied

Re: Ranger Admin is failing to Install

@Neeraj Sabharwal See permission looks correct to me.

Re: Ranger Admin is failing to Install

I have even tried changing permission to 777. But no success.

Re: Ranger Admin is failing to Install

Thats already done @Neeraj Sabharwal

please grant read and execute permission for all py files under /usr/hdp/current/ranger-admin folders (and sub-folders) and try again. Since the umask was set to 0027, it did not grant execute permission for OTHERS which is required for ambari user to execute these scripts.

Not sure about deleting the whole folder.

Sometimes for this kind of issue you can try reinstalling ranger_{{ version }}-admin.
