My Assumptions

You already executed the HDP environment preparation. If not see ​prepare the environment
https://docs.cloudera.com/HDPDocuments/Ambari-2.7.3.0/bk_ambari-installation/content/prepare_the_env...
You are running on Linux [RedHat, Centos] and you have root access!

 

Note: Replace test.ambari.com with the output of your $ hostname -f

 

 Re-adapt to fit your cluster

# root password = welcome1
# hostname = test.ambari.com 
# ranger user and password is the same

Steps

 Install the MySQL connector if not installed [Optional]

# yum install -y mysql-connector-java

 Shutdown Ambari

# ambari-server stop

Re-run the below command it won't hurt

# ambari-server setup --jdbc-db=mysql --jdbc-driver=/usr/share/java/mysql-connector-java.jar


 Backup the ambari server properties file

# cp /etc/ambari-server/conf/ambari.properties /etc/ambari-server/conf/ambari.properties.bak

Change the timeout of the ambari server

# echo 'server.startup.web.timeout=120' >> /etc/ambari-server/conf/ambari.properties
# echo 'server.jdbc.connection-pool.acquisition-size=5' >> /etc/ambari-server/conf/ambari.properties
# echo 'server.jdbc.connection-pool.max-age=0' >> /etc/ambari-server/conf/ambari.properties
# echo 'server.jdbc.connection-pool.max-idle-time=14400' >> /etc/ambari-server/conf/ambari.properties
# echo 'server.jdbc.connection-pool.max-idle-time-excess=0' >> /etc/ambari-server/conf/ambari.properties
# echo 'server.jdbc.connection-pool.idle-test-interval=7200' >> /etc/ambari-server/conf/ambari.properties

Recreate a new ranger schema & Database

# mysql -u root -pwelcome1
CREATE USER 'rangernew'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'rangernew';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'rangernew'@'localhost';
CREATE USER 'rangernew'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'rangernew';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON rangernew.* TO 'rangernew'@'%';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON rangernew.* TO 'rangernew'@'localhost' WITH GRANT OPTION;
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON rangernew.* to 'rangernew'@'localhost' identified by 'rangernew';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON rangernew.* to 'rangernew'@'test.ambari.com' identified by 'rangernew';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON rangernew.* TO 'rangernew'@'test.ambari.com';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON rangernew.* TO 'rangernew'@'%' WITH GRANT OPTION;
FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
quit;

 Create the new ranger database

# mysql -u rangernew -prangernew
create database rangernew;
show databases;
quit;

Start the ambari server

# ambari-server start
......Desired output.........
..................
.................
Ambari Server 'start' completed successfully.

For ranger Ambari UI setup
Use the hostname in this example test.ambari.com and the corresponding passwords

 

Test the Ranger DB connectivity
The connection test should succeed if it does then you can now start Ranger successfully.

Drop the old Ranger DB

# mysql -u root -pwelcome1
mysql> Drop database old_Ranger_name;

The above steps should resolve your Ranger issue.
