Ambari Forum

Adding new services after installation….

    So, I installed HDP 2.2 with Ambari and got it to work fine. During the installation, I did not select Ganglia and Nagios. Now I want to add it. I do not see a capability for that. How can I install those services on an existing installation… or do I have to reinstall?

    In the meantime, there are API calls you can make:
