ambari-agent start failed

Explorer

The agent does not start. Looks like OpenSSL is missing - it isn't.

Any ideas?

The rpm is:

ambari-agent-2.2.1.1-70.x86_64

Fixed:

Missing packages on RHEL 6.7 that I am guessing were:

  1. openssl-devel-1.0.1e-42.el6_7.2.x86_64
  2. krb5-devel-1.10.3-42.el6.x86_64

Pity the python rpms don't seem to depend on them ...

Re: ambari-agent start failed

What version of Python is already installed? Python v2.6 is the minimum requirement. Python v2.7.9 or later is not supported due to changes in how Python performs certificate validation. See Ambari software requirements.

Yes it is:

python -V Python 2.6.6

Any other ideas?

This could be because, lib referred might be of 32 bit. Can you check which one is being used.

What do you see in /var/log/ambari-agent/ambari-agent.out ?
