Accumulo (+ Ambari) on Vagrant

This project helps to set up a 1 node Accumulo cluster on Vagrant.


You need VirtualBox and Vagrant

Once installed, you can pre-fetch the referenced Centos 6.5 image:

vagrant box add centos65-x86_64-20140116

Initialize the single node cluster

git clone
cd accumulo-vagrant
vagrant up

Kicking the tires

#Log into Ambari (username:password admin:admin) and start up the Hadoop cluster

#Once its running, log in as root and start Accumulo
vagrant ssh
sudo su #this accumulo start script is in your path

accumulo shell -u root

When things go wrong

Things you might see:

"message" : "Attempted to add unknown hosts to a cluster. These hosts have not been registered with the server: ambari"


#Check which hosts are registered:
curl -Hs "X-Requested-By: ambari" -u admin:admin -i http://$AMBARI_URL/api/v1/hosts

#Delete the blueprint config:
curl -H "X-Requested-By: ambari" -X DELETE -u admin:admin http://$AMBARI_URL/api/v1/blueprints/single-node-hdfs-yarn

#Delete the Ambari cluster:
curl -H "X-Requested-By: ambari" -X DELETE -u admin:admin http://$AMBARI_URL/api/v1/clusters/MySingleNodeCluster


This project was derived from the SequenceIQ ambari-vagrant project, which in-turn was derived from the Apache Ambari Quick Start Guide and modified.
