Failed to create Livy session for executing notebook.

Hi,

 

In Microsoft Fabric, we are gettting the following types of error when running notebooks in a pipeline. 

 

"traceback":["Exception: Failed to create Livy session for executing notebook. LivySessionId: xxxxxxxx ","--> InvalidHttpRequestToLivy: [Unauthorized] Access token validation failed. HTTP status code: 401."]},"lastCheckedOn":"2024-01-09T11:44:39.1533333Z","metadata":null,"exitValue":null},"message":"Notebook execution is in Failed state, ....."

 

 

The Access token validation failed is the strange part to me...

We face a similar problem. Notebook alone needs about 30s to successfully complete. Called in a pipeline it needs over 10 Minutes to return the error mentioned above.

As a temporarily shortcut a capacity restart works.

Hi @willmasse 

 

Thanks for using Microsoft Fabric Community.

Apologies for the issue that you are facing here.

The 401 Unauthorized Error is an HTTP status code error that represented the request sent by the client to the server that lacks valid authentication credentials.

Methods to rectify the error: The 401 Unauthorized error can be fixed by using any of the following ways: 

  • Check The URL: Due to manual errors in typing the URL, the 401 unauthorized error may occur. Hence, checking the URL and rectifying the mistakes in it will fix the 401 error status.
  • Flush the DNS: Errors in DNS also creates 401 error status sometimes. Therefore, clearing the DNS will also rectify this error. In Windows, the DNS can be flushed by typing ipconfig/flushdns in the command prompt and clicking on ENTER.
  • Clear Browser Cookie: In some situations, the cookies may not work smoothly leading to improper server authentication. Thus, by clearing the cookies, the error can be rectified.
  • Logging out and Logging in again: If you're authenticated via a session (like in a web app), it might have expired. Therefore, logging out and logging in again by providing the credentials may also rectify this error.

I hope this information helps. Please do let us know if you have any further questions.

These are Notebooks running in Pipelines. None of those things are applicable. 

 

I also get these errors as well: SparkCoreError/SessionDidNotEnterIdle: Livy session has failed. Error code: SparkCoreError/SessionDidNotEnterIdle. SessionInfo.State from SparkCore is Error: Session did not enter idle state after 10 minutes. 

 

I'm getting really frequent errors running Notebooks in Pipelines that all revolve around Livy session.

Hi @willmasse 

 

Apologies for the delay in response.

This seems to be an intermittent issue, can you please try to rerun the pipelines?

If the issue still persists please do let us know.

 

Thanks

I have run into this error on many occasions and it can often be solved by limiting the number of notebooks running in parallel. It seems to hit a limit of how many notebooks can run at once. Instead of waiting for compute to be available, it just fails.

 

But I've also had this happen when only running a single notebook...

We've been getting the Livy Session did not enter idle state after 10 minutes Error intermittently. our pipelines tend to run notebooks sequentially, but there can be an overlap once in a while. But.... our notebooks do very little processing. they normally take 3-10s to complete. so how contention is causing this is baffling me.
