Re: ​Service 'userhome' check failed: File does not exist: /user/admin

Super Guru

Can you please tell us a little about what you are doing here? It seems from the log you are using webhdfs using user admin? If that is correct please confirm user admin exist in the kernel. Or use another user which does exist.
