Hello Nico, Thanks for helping me with this. It's really nerve-wracking, not coming further with this. No here's what I tried: I checked if port is open by using telnet and connecting to jobmanager's port, worked. Furthermore I've started the jobmanager and taskmanager individual on each node, still not working. I've found a problem. In "masters" file, there were a port configured, there was an entry like "myhost:8081". I think, that was an error. But now I've got the error, that akka timed out on distributing an operation after 10.000ms. Can you help me with this? The topics related to that won't work with my problem.
Thanks in advance! Lukas -----Ursprüngliche Nachricht----- Von: Nico Kruber [mailto:n...@data-artisans.com] Gesendet: Dienstag, 6.

It looks like your TaskManager cannot reach the JobManager. Is 'jobmanager.rpc.address' configured correctly on the TaskManager? And is it reachable by this name? Is port 6123 allowed through the firewall? Are you sure the JobManager is running? How do you start the cluster? If you have been using start-cluster.sh (as per ), please also try to start the services manually to check whether there's something wrong there.
