Applies to:

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 4.1.0 and later
Linux x86-64

Symptoms

A BDA V4.1 cluster extension from a full rack to add 3 additional nodes from a starter rack fails as described in:

BDA V4.1 Install of Multirack Cluster Fails at Step 9 with: Command exceeded timeout (Doc ID 1983937.1),

The error from the log is like:
...

Stage[main]/Hadoop::Installpkg2/Exec[start_cloudera_agents]/returns) executed successfully
Apr 23 13:27:47 bdanode01 puppet-master[12034]: (//bdanode01.example.com/Puppet) Command exceeded timeout

Apr 23 13:27:47 bdanode01 puppet-master[12034]: (//bdanode01.lacaixa.es//Stage[post]/Miscsetup::Endstep/Notify[end_step])
   Dependency Exec[setup_scm_params] has failures: true


However the workaround from Doc ID 1983937.1 to raise the timeout from: 1200 to 2400 or even 5400 does not resolve the failure.
