I setup all services which I need in my ambari 2.5 on the 2.5 HDP,

All services are working fine except Hbase which I have some trouble with.

the ActiveHbaseMaster is active but the HbaseServer is down and I could not start it:

this is the output Error:

resource_management.core.exceptions.ExecutionFailed: Execution of '/usr/hdp/current/hbase-master/bin/ --config /usr/hdp/current/hbase-master/conf start master' returned 127. -bash: /usr/hdp/current/hbase-master/bin/ No such file or directory

so here he say that there is no file.

so I try to find this one where is it exactly, so I made I global search in the server which contains the HbaseServer by running Find / -name

there is no is my node.

@yassine sihi,

Can you please try installing the client using this command and see if it works

curl -k -u {username}:{password} -H "X-Requested-By:ambari" -i -X PUT -d '{"HostRoles": {"state": "INSTALLED"}}' http://{ambari-host}:{ambari-port}/api/v1/clusters/{clustername}/hosts/{hostname}/host_components/HB...

Replace hostname with the host where it is failing.

Could you please explain what should I get by running this command, because I could not run it in my node

@yassine sihi,

You should get response like below and also in the ambari GUI operations, you should see a request to install HBASE client.

What is the error that you are facing while running the command.

This is what I got:

@yassine sihi,

Can you please paste the curl command which you have used. Looks like the url is malformed according to the error response.

Ideally we should see some directories and symlinks as following:

[root@sandbox ~]# locate

[root@sandbox ~]#  ls -l /usr/hdp/current/hbase-master
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 Nov 11 15:03 /usr/hdp/current/hbase-master -> /usr/hdp/

[root@sandbox ~]#  ls -l /usr/hdp/current/hbase-master/bin/ 
-rwxr-xr-x 2 root root 8952 Apr  1  2017 /usr/hdp/current/hbase-master/bin/


NOTE: In your case it might be a slightly different version of HDP 2.5 (so please change the "" version accordingly).


It might be possible that the "hdp-select" command has not created proper symlink in your HBase host.
So please check the output of "hdp-select" command to see if the output shows correct version of HBase there?


[root@sandbox ~]# hdp-select
[root@sandbox ~]# hdp-select | grep hbase

If not then reinstalling HBase will be a better idea. (This will be the last option.) Because missing "" indicates an incomplete or corrupted installation of HBase Service. So better remove the HBase Service from Ambari UI and then reinstall it. (you might loose HBase data though). OR manually copy the missing files to this host from any other working cluster.


Regarding HBase CLient installation, It will be really easy to try installing HBase Client from Ambari UI directly, on the host where we are seeing the error .

Ambari UI --> Hosts (Tab) --> (click the hostname) where HBase startup is failing.

Now on the Host Page in Ambari UI scroll down to see the list of Client packages installed. And click on the INstall Clients or refresh clients button.

Regarding reinstalling HBase service.

How can I remove the HBase Service from Ambari UI? and How can I reinstall it surely ?
