rhel 7 server reboot deleted /var/run/ambari-metrics-collector directory

Hortonworks cluster is installed on RHEL 7, a reboot of the server deletes the /var/run/ambari-metrics-collector directory.


Only pid files are placed in /var/run by Ambari. What problem is this causing for you?


The directory itself gets deleted on reboot and when the server is back up, Ambari is not able to start the Service. Manual restart of the service also fails as the directory does not exist. This happens to all the services except ambari-server and ambari-agent not just the metrics collector.
