deployment fatal

Hi All,


Due to some reasons on the storage perspective, I had to re-install my sas viya and while installing I am facing this issue:


2018-03-14 08:36:19,088 p=12940 u=root |  TASK [Report if a host participating in the deployment is missing the sas_vars dictionary] ***
2018-03-14 08:36:19,215 p=12940 u=root |  fatal: [deployTarget]: FAILED! => {"changed": false, "failed": true, "failed_when_result": true, "msg": "The following host(s) are missing the required sas_vars dictionary: set(). See deployment.log for details."}
2018-03-14 08:36:19,215 p=12940 u=root |  NO MORE HOSTS LEFT *************************************************************
2018-03-14 08:36:19,216 p=12940 u=root |  PLAY RECAP *********************************************************************
2018-03-14 08:36:19,216 p=12940 u=root |  deployTarget               : ok=10   changed=0    unreachable=0    failed=1
2018-03-14 08:36:19,216 p=12940 u=root |  localhost                  : ok=4    changed=0    unreachable=0    failed=0

I have faced the same issue during my initial deployment. And that was due to the Fqdn. But, now I made sure that my host name is a FQDN (both static and transient hostnames are FQDNs).



Could you please help on this, as what else is causing this issue. Thanks!!

Re: deployment fatal

Hello @AmitSri,


does deployment.log include any additional details on this error, perhaps?

Hi @JuanS_OCS

No, the log didnot give any other details apart from this.
