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.

Hi Atif - How did you resolve that issue? Am facing the similar issue when deploy the services via Ambari blueprint

Explorer

Not yet, Sunile will be looking into this today.

The same error

Service 'userhome' check failed:
java.io.FileNotFoundException: File does not exist: /user/admin

When I try to open Hive View

@Nikita Kiselev

Try below commands and check

  1. sudo su - hdfs
  2. hdfs dfs -mkdir /user/admin
  3. hdfs dfs -chown root:hdfs /user/admin

Fixed by creating this directory on HDFS

hadoop fs -mkdir /user/admin

Explorer

Thanks for help

This is missing,

hdfs dfs -chown admin:hadoop /user/admin

Explorer

Resolved, thanks yo all

Explorer

Resolved, thanks to all.

If that doesn't work, try running as the HDFS superuser

sudo -u hdfs hdfs dfsadmin -safemode leave
sudo -u hdfs hdfs dfs -mkdir /user/admin
sudo -u hdfs hdfs dfs -chown root:hdfs /user/admin
