Got the same issue on Centos7, when launching by systemctl.

systemctl status ambari-server
.....
Sep 17 13:02:15 sr1 systemd[1]: Starting LSB: ambari-server daemon...
Sep 17 13:02:15 sr1 ambari-server[1339]: Need python version > 2.6
Sep 17 13:02:15 sr1 systemd[1]: ambari-server.service: control process exited, code=exited status=1

But,

/etc/init.d/ambari-server starts

works fine!

I fixed it by patching ambari-server file:

Replace:

export ROOT=`dirname $(dirname $SCRIPT_DIR)` 
ROOT=`echo $ROOT | sed 's/\/$//'`

by

export ROOT='/'

I don't know what this ROOT variable is intended for, but in my case, it was set to '/etc' when launching by systemctl. This will of course break the launched process

TRICK:

Just add

env >/tmp/env.txt

at appropriate place in ambari-server file. And you will get

PATH=/etc/usr/lib/ambari-server/*:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin/:/usr/sbin
PWD=/
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
AMBARI_CONF_DIR=/etc/etc/ambari-server/conf
ROOT=/etc
AMBARI_PASSPHRASE=DEV
SHLVL=1
PYTHON=
_=/usr/bin/env

Which is obviously wrong....

Hope this will help

using Ubuntu OS -I was installed the other server but it doesn't ask about python installation in the server. I don't know where I am missing the steps to install the ambari-server.

I will start with something very basic. After installing python, did you start a new ssh window or putty session? if not, can you please try that first. Also run python -V to find python version.

I have started new putty session but still getting the same problem. No luck.

python version is Python 2.7.5

@narender pasunooti

Please check the following code (line 81). Basically your python version is evaluating to less than 2.6. It is definitely not coming evaluating as 2.7.5.

https://github.com/apache/ambari/blob/trunk/ambari-server/sbin/ambari-server

What is your PYTHON home?

Can you run "/usr/bin/python -V" and share the result.

If you still see the message then based on following link, you can try with "--skip-borken"

i am getting the result : Python 2.7.6

But ubuntu doesn't have -skip-broken function it seems and it is not working. Please give the ubuntu related code.

When shall I use the --skip-broken command ? any sample code please.

Is this really works?

Thanks,

Can you try removing python and then reinstalling it.

  1. sudo dpkg -P python2.7
  2. sudo apt-get install python2.7
