Re: ambari server upgrade failed

HI @Sam Red ,

Seems like you are hitting this Apache JIRA : https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMBARI-21263

Can you try to run the ambari-server upgrade with -v option and see what exact error is mentions.

usually it will be symlink error. then delete the symlink from the location or try the solution mention in the link : https://community.hortonworks.com/questions/110792/ambari-25-upgrade-and-hdpsearch-issue.html

See if this helps.
