Troubleshoot Falcon Web UI Cluster Creation - Invalid Workflow Server or Port Error

avatar
Rising Star

I am attempting to create a Falcon cluster entity using the Web UI.

**My Environment**

I have a functioning Oozie Server (have successfully run workflows from the command line, and I can access the Oozie Web UI without issue). I have a three-node cluster running in Docker. Both Falcon and Oozie are installed on node2.

**The Error**

Note: The way name resolution is set up, FQDNs are not required in my environment, or rather, "node2" is the FQDN equivalent.

**Troubleshooting So Far**

I have tried replacing node2 with the IP address. I get the same error:

I have confirmed that I can access this URL via the Oozie Web UI. Just to be pedantic, I also performed a port scan to confirm that port 11000 was truly open on the server.

What could be causing this error? Are there additional troubleshooting steps I can take?

Hi Jeden : When you see an error like this, it means that Falcon server is unable to contact oozie server. Can you please try "curl from the falcon server and let us know if it works.

You can get further information about the underlying exception if you look at falcon.application.log. Please share that exception as well, and we will be able to help you.

Balu - here are the results of the cURL from the Falcon server -- it works fine:

As far as the log file goes, the error I'm getting back indicates failure because Falcon is not set up as a proxy user. Here's the pertinent snippet, I think:

However, as I will show in my next post, I have set up both falcon and oozie proxyuser settings as * so I'm not sure why that would be an issue here.

Here's part 2 of the answer, with the screenshot showing my current proxyuser settings for falcon and oozie:

I realize it's possible I've missed something...
