odi-agent Fails to Start with "Agent OracleDIAgent start failure: data source for master repository did not contain a master repository" (Doc ID 2296565.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 31, 2023

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 4.5.0 and later
Linux x86-64


NOTE: In the examples that follow, user details, cluster names, hostnames, directory paths, filenames, etc. represent a fictitious sample (and are used to provide an illustrative example only). Any similarity to actual persons, or entities, living or dead, is purely coincidental and not intended in any manner.


Starting the odi-agent on the node with ODI role, Node 4 by default, fails as below. 

The BDA_ODI_REPO schema should contain a full set of tables. The problem is that it is empty.

Therefore the odi-agent start failure is not the same as reported in:'service odi-agent start' Fails with "Starting : Script /opt/oracle/odiagent/12.1.3/user_projects/domains/bdadomain/bin/ didn't run successfully with the oracle user" on BDA V4.4 (Doc ID 2164226.1), although the initial symptom looks the same.
