Description Luigi Toscano 2018-05-11 20:14:28 UTC
Description of problem:

Apparently a very recent change in jdk policies disabled TLSv1, which is used by default by Ambari agents to communicate with the Ambari server.
This means that the Ambari plugins is not working anymore. Recent change because it was working until (at least) the end of April 2018, and one of the document describing the issue was published on May 3th.

After some digging, its seems that this issue is fixed or at least can be workarounded only from Ambari or >=2.5. More details in this ticket: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMBARI-17666

This is the relevant commit: https://github.com/apache/ambari/commit/b9de1383cd714ccc132e84abb80e8760d75a573e

The important document from Hortonworks describing the issue is: https://community.hortonworks.com/articles/188269/javapython-updates-and-ambari-agent-tls-settings.html

In addition to the patch, the agents should be configured to use a newer version of TLS. This means changing /etc/ambari-agent/conf/ambari-agent.ini on the images and adding a new key in the [security] section:


This means the the Ambari images can be fixed only upgrading to; that means sahara-image-pack can be used without problems; sahara-image-elements defaults to older versions for older versions of HDP for historical reasons, even if 2.4 could be used too even for HDP 2.4 and HDP 2.3, but it may require more time.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All versions of Sahara.

Comment 4 Luigi Toscano 2018-05-17 16:40:37 UTC
The fix which bumps the version of TLS used by ambari-agent to 1.2 is available. In an image generated by sahara-image-pack, the Ambari agents can talk to ambari-server, thus allowing the creation of the cluster.

Verified with (source package):
