Zepplin fails to start on HDP 2.5 using Ambari "Start All"

Zepplin fails to start on HDP 2.5 using Ambari "Start All"

Explorer

I have an AWS instance that I shutdown the following way:

  1. Turned off all services at once with "Shutdown all services" button.
  2. Turned off Ambari server
  3. AWS shutdown all instances at once.

Unfortunately starting them all up again the reverse way, it failed at Zepplin with an error saying it couldn't create /var/run/zepplin due to bad permissions. I manually followed the symlink to /run directory and changed perms to 777 so other services could create directories under it. Then everything started fine. I suspect this is a bug in the Zepplin service start function?

Are you using HDP on AWS, Cloudbreak or Hortonworks Data Cloud for AWS?

@Rupert Bailey check the permission on the following directories

ls -l /var/run/zeppelin/*.pid

ls -ld /var/run/zeppelin

The permissions on these directories and files should be zeppelin:zeppelin, if not then change permission and restart zepplin and see if it helps.
