"mammoth-reconfig add em" Fails with "ERROR: Not a valid url" Preventing the Agent Pull Script and emclikit from Downloading with BDA Plugin (Doc ID 1964271.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 27, 2019

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 3.1.0 and later
Linux x86-64


On BDA V3.1 with the plugin running ./mammoth-reconfig add em fails with:

ERROR: Not a valid url - https://<OMS_HOST>.<DOMAIN>:7802/em/install/getAgentImage
ERROR: Unable to download the agent pull script!
ERROR: Not a valid url - https://<OMS_HOST>.<DOMAIN>:7802/em/public_lib_download/emcli/kit/emclikit.jar
ERROR: Unable to download the emclikit!

The plugin is not supported on BDA V3.1 however these errors are not plugin related.

Other symptoms include:

1. The corresponding access.log on the OMS host reports the error as:

access_log:<OMS_HOST_IP> - - [12/Nov/2014:13:46:20 +0100] "HEAD /em/install/getAgentImage HTTP/1.1" 403 - [ecid: -] [User-Agent: libwww-perl/5.833]
access_log:<OMS_HOST_IP> - - [12/Nov/2014:13:46:20 +0100] "HEAD /em/public_lib_download/emcli/kit/emclikit.jar HTTP/1.1" 403 - [ecid: -] [User-Agent: libwww-perl/5.833]

The check to see if the url is accessible or if the files exist fails with Error 403.  Accessing those two items getAgentImage and emclikit.jar is forbidden.

2. Manually accessing the files with wget reproduces the problem.  For example:

Note: There are no firewall problems, no OMS permission problems, the ports are open, and all other access to succeed.
