(Doc ID 1928663.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 11, 2016

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 4.0 and later
Linux x86-64


After upgrade/install of BDA 4.0, bdacheckcluster/bdachecksw reports that CM agents on most of the BDA nodes are down.

ERROR: Cloudera SCM agent not running on host

The cloudera-scm-agent service indicates that the agents are dead on most of the BDA nodes 

And also since the stale cloudera-scm-agent process exists on all the BDA nodes, Cloudera Manager(CM) doesn't report agent as being down


BDA 4.0 Install or Upgrade  of CDH Cluster
