Unable to start Accumulo service on HDP-3.1

Unable to start Accumulo service on HDP-3.1

New Contributor


I have installed Accumulo on HDP-3.1 and when I try to start the service using Ambari it gives the below error


Python script has been killed due to timeout after waiting 600 secs

Command failed after 1 tries

I suspect its not the timeout issue that is causing this. When I extracted the command from Ambari and ran on the host running Accumulo master, getting the below message. Its strange that I don't see anything logged under /var/log/accumulo/. I have tried restarting HDFS & ZK just to tick the box but still no difference.

This is my first time experience with Accumulo. Anyone seen this or can offer any help is highly appreciated. This cluster is not Kerberized.
