HDP on Windows – Installation Forum

6-node Windows Server 2008 R2 Cluster Configuration

  • #51226
    Paul Matsiras

    I have a 6-node cluster of Dell desktops running Windows Server 2008 R2

    Their names and proposed functions are:
    HEADNODE (holds the domain names) – cannot be used in HDP 2.0
    BNODE – proposed HOST1
    CNODE01 – proposed HOST2
    CNODE02 – proposed SLAVE1
    CNODE03 – proposed SLAVE2
    CNODE04 – proposed SLAVE3

    In the past few days, I have tried different Windows HDP 2.0 configuration variations with mixed results.

    It will be greatly appreciated if a forum member could provide guidance on what realistically would be their optimal configuration –providing a clusterproperties.txt guidance file will be an added bonus, as I could see all recommended services.

    Thank you in advance.
