At time of publication, the following issues were known.
Problem: When running Analytic Server with Spark, the Distinct node may fail to return all valid cases.
Solution: Do not use the Distinct node on systems where Spark is enabled. This issue will be fixed in a later release.
Problem: On systems with Spark, join jobs that involve an HBase data source fail.
Solution: Create a temporary file-based data source from the HBase table and use that for the join job.
Problem: On Hadoop 2.0 or higher versions, jobs that include R nodes may fail.
Solution: Make sure that the user that installed Analytic Server is added to the no password sudoers list.
Problem: Real time scoring against an Analytic Server cluster fails.
Solution: Remove the leader node from the load balancer for the cluster. The leader is the first node you start.
