YARN unable to start the Job and FinalStatus is undefined

New Contributor



I have a new Cloudera setup with Cluster setup ( Had single node initially) i.e Cloudera 5.4.1. This brand new installation on EC2 do have any specific changes to YARN.


I had a couple of jobs started in Sqoop, Sqoop2 and sample WordCount example. And all job struct at final status UNDEFINED and not getting and clue where is the problem.


This looks like below.


application_1433292017070_0001ubuntugrep-searchMAPREDUCEroot.ubuntuTue Jun 2 17:48:11 -0700 2015N/AACCEPTEDUNDEFINED UNASSIGNED

Please let me know if you need any information.

Your job is waiting for the scheduler to assign a container.


Check at the top what are the resources available. Maybe you don't have any nodemanagers providing resources or all the resources are tied up.

I have setup CDH 5.5.1 cluster(3 nodes) with all components(may be overkill) for POC. SQOOP job is accepta but unassigned state. 


VM Servers : 8GB RAM

CPUs : 2


NodeManager :

Container Memory : 2.2 GB

Virtual CPU Cores : 4


Any help will be appreciated.

Resolved it:


My setup had 2 nodemanager, was missing YARN service on node1. Jobs completed after adding node1 as NodeManager.


added it from CM via CM -> YARN -> Instances -> Add Role Instances -> Gateway 

restarted it.

 Hi - I'm new to cloudera, I installed a single node cluster... 


Now I'm trying to import simple table with just two rows, the job is accepted and doesn't get assinged. 

Could you please help me ?
