Step 5 of Mammoth upgrade fails during "Installing Hadoop Parcel". The failure is due to the CDH parcel upgrade failing because it can not deploy the client configuration on a node with HBase role.

Step 5 fails during "Installing Hadoop Parcel" with:

Error [63169]: (//[main]/Hadoop::Installcdhparcel/Exec[deployparcel]/returns)
change from notrun to 0 failed:
/opt/oracle/BDAMammoth/bdaconfig/tmp/ &>
/opt/oracle/BDAMammoth/bdaconfig/tmp/deployparcel_<EPOCH_TIMESTAMP>.out returned 1 instead of one of [0]

Additional symptoms include:

1. deployparcel_<EPOCH_TIMESTAMP>.out shows:

Operation failed
Result Message is: "Failed to upgrade cluster: <a target=\"_blank\" href=\"/cmf/hardware/hosts?filterHeartbeatHealth=bad\">1 host(s) that cannot be reached</a>. These hosts must be fixed, decommissioned, or removed from the cluster before upgrade can proceed.",

2. Navigating in CM to Hosts > Parcels shows the following error while upgrading the parcel:

Error when distributing to : Host is in bad health.

3. Navigating in CM to Home > All Recent Commands shows the parcel upgrade failed on step 23 of 24 when trying to deploy the client configuration.

a) Manually deploying the client configuration in CM from Home > <CLUSTER_NAME> > dropdown > Deploy Client Configuration also fails with:

Generate and deploy client configuration.
Completed only 7/8 steps. First failure: Client configuration (id=70) on host (id=2) exited with 2 and expected 0.

b) Drilling down into the logs show the deploying the client configuration fails due to an HBase role on the node.
