Retry a Data Lake

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

Only failed stack or Data Lake creation can be resolved using a retry operation. You can potentially run a retry operation any number of times on a failed creation process, where each time it runs it resumes the creation process after the last successful step.

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

  1. Log in to the CDP web interface.
  2. Navigate to Management Console > Data Lakes.
  3. Browse to the Data Lake details.
  4. Click Retry.
  5. Click Yes to confirm. The operation continues from the last failed step.
