Root Cause:

The error message implies they can not connect to jobtracker thrift plug-in.
Multiple reasons are for this issue:
1. jobtracker configuration is set wrongly in section "[[mapred_clusters]]" of /opt/mapr/hue/hue-<version>/desktop/conf/hue.ini
2. Network connection issue between Hue and jobtracker.
3. No jobtracker for this hadoop cluster, eg, Yarn only.


For different reasons, we need to fix differently.
1. Correct section "[[mapred_clusters]]" of /opt/mapr/hue/hue-<version>/desktop/conf/hue.ini if this is MR1 hadoop cluster.
2. From Hue server, run "telnet hostname 9290" to test if the port on the jobtracker host is accessible.
Also, please check on the jobtracker host to verify if the jobtracker is started by running "jps -m|grep -i tracker"; and make sure jobtracker thrift plug-in port is occupied by the jobtracker process by running "lsof -i:9290".
For example:
[root@n3a ~]# jps -m|grep -i jobtracker
15601 JobTracker
[root@n3a ~]# lsof -i:9290
java    15601 mapr  113u  IPv4 105159242      0t0  TCP *:9290 (LISTEN)
3. If this is Yarn(MR2) only hadoop cluster, we need to fix the entries in /opt/mapr/hue/hue-<version>/desktop/conf/hue.ini as below.
For section "[[mapred_clusters]]", we disable the access to jobtracker by imputing "submit_to=False";
For section "[[yarn_clusters]]",  we need to make sure all entries are correct and input "submit_to=True".
