Retry a cluster

When stack provisioning or cluster creation fails, use the retry option to resume the process from the last failed step.

Only failed stack or cluster creations can be retried. A retry can be initiated any number of times on a failed creation process.

In some cases the cause of a failed stack provisioning or cluster creation can be eliminated by simply retrying the process. For example, in case of a temporary network outage, a retry should be successful. In other cases, a manual modification is required before a retry can succeed. For example, if you are using a custom image but some configuration is missing, causing the process to fail, you must log in to the machine and fix the issue; Only after that you can retry the process.

  1. Log in to the CDP web interface.
  2. Navigate to the Management Console > Data Hub Clusters.
  3. Browse to cluster details.
  4. Click Actions and select Retry.
  5. Click Yes to confirm. The operation continues from the last failed step.
