A couple of nodes in the BDA cluster are showing "Concerning" health and one node in "Bad" health in Cloudera Manager. The warning message displayed in Cloudera Manager with the "Concerning" health node is the following:
Cloudera Manager agent estimates that the host's clock is offset from the expected clock by 6 second(s). Warning threshold: 3 second(s).

The following similar behavior may be observed showing the times are not synced up on all servers.

Tto check if this is the issue that is being run into log in as root on the bda cluster node01:

# dcli date
# dcli -C date
may show similar output: Thu Apr 18 11:05:30 CDT 2013 Thu Apr 18 11:05:32 CDT 2013 Thu Apr 18 11:05:33 CDT 2013 Thu Apr 18 11:05:31 CDT 2013 Thu Apr 18 11:05:25 CDT 2013 Thu Apr 18 11:05:21 CDT 2013


Note: If running the command using dcli does not work, you may need to run the following command first from the first node as root user then execute the dcli command:

setup-root-ssh -C
