hortonworks cloud for aws technical preview create failed

New Contributor

Hi, i'm following http://hortonworks.github.io/hdp-aws/ but getting a create_failed message when trying to create stack - 'The following resource(s) failed to create: [ClusterWaitCondition]' & 'WaitCondition received failed message: 'command 'cbd start-wait' exited with status: 1 (line 130)' for uniqueId: cbd-init' - I'm using the template from the github https://s3.amazonaws.com/cbd-quickstart/cbd-advanced-1.4.0-rc.36.template - any faq or pointers I can check on this?!

Hi @Aengus Rooney and @Tamas Bihari,

I just ran into the same issue. I tried to deploy with two different unique stack names and both times I got a failure during cbdinit. For giggles I tried again but this time removed the non-alphanumeric characters ('&' and '*') from my password and it succeeded. Seems like there is an implicit character set limit on the password. Would be nice to either remove this limit [preferable] or at least make a note on the form that only alphanumeric characters are acceptable.

Please make sure you use the unique stack name. "e.g default value is HortonworksCloudController" Change it to something unique and try again.

Thanks Milind, thought of that, the name i'm using is very unique, and still failing (i've tried a number of times).. Do you know if there are any logs I can check?

Hi @Aengus Rooney

I tried to reproduce your issue with the linked template without success. As @Michael Young mentioned you could find the Cloudbreak deployment Profile and most of the logs under '/var/lib/cloudbreak-deployment'. But we also use cloudinit on the VMs under the hood. It looks like the initialization of the deployment failed that is triggered by the cloud init. So could you please share with us the log under '/var/log/cbd-quick-start.log'?

You can find logs for HDP AWS at /var/lib/cloudbreak-deployment/cbreak.log.

Awesome - thanks Brandon! Agree with your thoughts that special chars should be allowable, or if not, we should make a note on the form..

Hi @Aengus Rooney

Yes, there might be an issue with & or * in passwords. We've added a note into the documentation about that limitation. As well, TP #1.5 has just been posted in case you want to re-try with the latest bits.
