ambari-agent files missing during installation

Master Collaborator

I am installing HDP2.4 with ambari2.4 and I am getting these "file not found " errors , if I create a directory manually the process moves ahead n fails on other directories.

apparently ambari install is expecting ambari-agent to be installed already? if that's the case I have never done this step manually before . so what i am missing ?

i have installed the cluster before by just installing ambari-server and initiating the install from web.

Ambari Agent can be installed manually as well as via Ambari UI and both options are valid.

You mentioned that "apparently ambari install is expecting ambari-agent to be installed already?"

>>> Ambari Server installation does not require the agent to be installed already. Can you please share the Ambari Server installation log/output of the console which makes you feel that ambari installation is expecting agent installation?

.

Are you getting the same IOError and file not found on every ambari agent host?

/usr/sbin/ambari-agent: line 97: ambari-sudo.sh: command not found

IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: \'/var/lib/ambari-agent/data/version\'

If that is happening on any particular Agent host then it might be due to incomplete agent installation. So either you willl need to check the "yum.log" to see if the agent installation was successful or not? (OR) Better to run the following command manually on the agent hosts to recover the installation.

# yum reinstall ambari-agent -y
