Upgrading Oracle Big Data Appliance from 2.5.0 to 3.0.1 Release Fails during Step 7 on Addyarn Can Not Log into Cloudera Manager (Doc ID 1910417.1)

Last updated on MAY 04, 2018

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 3.0.1 and later
Linux x86-64


The symptoms are:

1. When upgrading to BDA V3.0.1 from BDA 2.5 Step 7 of the Mammoth upgrade fails with:

Error [8425]: (//[main]/Hadoop::Addyarn/Exec[add_yarn]/returns) change from notrun to 0 failed:
 /opt/oracle/BDAMammoth/bdaconfig/tmp/ &> /opt/oracle/BDAMammoth/bdaconfig/tmp/addyarn.out returned 1
instead of one of [0] at /opt/oracle/BDAMammoth/puppet/modules/hadoop/manifests/addyarn.pp:46

After this you can not log into Cloudera Manager (CM):

2.  From Node 3 checking the CM server status shows:

# service cloudera-scm-server status
cloudera-scm-server dead but pid file exists

3. The corresponding log file /var/log/cloudera-scm-server/cloudera-scm-server.log shows a connection problem:
