BDA Node Expansion to Add a Reimaged Node Back into the Cluster fails with Invalid UUID (Doc ID 2143855.1)

Last updated on MAY 31, 2016

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 4.2.0 and later
Linux x86-64

Symptoms

The symptom is that running the command to add Node 6 back into the cluster (with -g to single-step through the phases) fails at Step 9, InstallHadoop. The failure looks like:

1. From the file: /var/log/cloudera-scm-agent/cloudera-scm-agent.log, it is observed that the Node 6 cloudera-scm-agent, is up, but not heart-beating into the CM node, Node three.

2. On Node 6 the file: /var/lib/cloudera-scm-agent/uuid exists but is empty.
