Vertica install failed. System prerequisites failed

inigoinigo Vertica Customer

Hello everybody,
I got the following error during the installation of vertica:

Error: Command failed on 'XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX':
VERT_DBA_USR=dradmin VERT_DBA_DATA_DIR=/opt/application/CA/data/data VERT_DBA_HOME=/home/dradmin VERT_DBA_GRP=dradmin /opt/vertica/oss/python/bin/python -m vertica.local_coerce
returncode = 1
_**System prerequisites failed. **_Threshold = FAIL
Hint: Fix above failures or use --failure-threshold
Installation FAILED with errors.

I have doubled check the pre requisites and I really think that the server meets all of them. I have check the file install.log but I don't understand it. Can you please tell me how I can check deeper what I am missing? I have installed vertica many times but never come across this issue where I am completely block.
Many thanks.

    Is your firewall up and running? What is your OS version? Is it failing on one node or all nodes?

    Hello Inigo,
    Try running pre-requisites validation again using following command, individually on all the nodes.
    if you are running vertica over any Linux flavor, then do as:
    1) Login to the vertica node as dbadmin user or vertica OS user.
    2) Run the following command:
    /opt/vertica/oss/python/bin/python -m vertica.local_verify

    Shortcut, if you want to run it on all the nodes via loop:
    for h in grep 'hosts =' /opt/vertica/config/admintools.conf | awk -F'=' '{print $2}' | tr ',' '\n'; do ssh $h "echo; hostname; echo; /opt/vertica/oss/python/bin/python -m vertica.local_verify ;echo; "; done;
