when running the script in start_sandbox-hdp.sh to run the sandbox image on Docker it gets stuck at "Ambari Server 'start' completed successfully."
ambari-agent do not start.
If ambari agent is not starting then it must be logging something.
So can you please check and share the following log?
# ls -l /var/log/ambari-agent/ambari-agent.log
If needed then please try starting the ambari agent in DEBUG mode by making the "loglevel=DEBUG"
change in the "/etc/ambari-agent/conf/ambari-agent.ini" file to get more detailed logging:
[agent] logdir=/var/log/ambari-agent piddir=/var/run/ambari-agent prefix=/var/lib/ambari-agent/data ;loglevel=(DEBUG/INFO) loglevel=INFO
[agent] logdir=/var/log/ambari-agent piddir=/var/run/ambari-agent prefix=/var/lib/ambari-agent/data ;loglevel=(DEBUG/INFO) loglevel=DEBUG
Then restart the ambari agent to see DEBUG logging.
on ubuntu 16.04 the shell script to start the HDP sandbox 2.6.3 Docker image will hang using Docker CE version 17.11 or 17.12. The problem does not occure with version 17.09.
Yup - this issue was triggered by a Docker change. Please use this updated start script for deploying the HDP 2.6.3 sandbox: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hortonworks/data-tutorials/f88da0da324e252996cf3201fc9b038e9564a66...
Note: Please only use this script for the HDP 2.6.3 sandbox. If you find yourself reading this thread in the future, a new process is in place and this script is likely much more simplified/streamlined in the future - so the link above will be obsolete.
