Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 2.3.1 and later
Linux x86-64


Extending the CDH cluster with BDA software version 2.3.1 fails running step 2:

The following succeeds creating the mammoth-params file:

[root@bda1node01 BDAMammoth]# ./mammoth -e bda1node07 3

SUCCESS: Successfully generated parameter file mammoth-bda1-1.params

However the following error is seen while running step 2 of the mammoth installation:

[root@bda1node01 BDAMammoth]# ./mammoth -s 2

The trace shows that it failed at step 2:
