Retry a Data Lake

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

Required role: EnvironmentAdmin or the Owner of the environment

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.
