In BDCS V4.7 the Big Data Deployment is Missing ODI Agent (Doc ID 2281980.1)

Last updated on JULY 26, 2017

Applies to:

Big Data Cloud Service - Version 1.0 and later
Linux x86-64


Big Data deployment is missing ODI agent. With bdc enabled on BDCS, the ODI agent should be enabled.

To verify:

The "bdacli getinfo cluster_bdc_installed" command should return true.
The command "bdacli getinfo cluster_odi_enabled" returns false


# bdacli getinfo cluster_odi_version returned:
ERROR: ODI is not enabled

On a 3 node cluster from node 2 as root running:

# service odi-agent status


-bash-4.1# service odi-agent status
odi-agent: unrecognized service

Per the documentation see Where Do the Services Run on a Three-Node, Development-Only Cluster?

For a 3 node cluster ODI service is running on node2. For a 6 node cluster or higher it should be running on node 4.

The ODI agent is supposed to be installed on some BDCS cluster versions but there are some BDCS versions where it is not installed. Check the following on 4.7.2 the output will be like:
