HDP on Linux – Installation Forum

Changing ports when installing HDP using Ambari

  • #28994

    If I need to change parameters on Ambari, namely, “dfs.http.address” or “mapred.job.tracker.http.address “, how can I do that? Ambari does not allow to change these through the UI.

    Hi Dev,

    These ports/properties can be changed in the ‘Customize Services’ step of the install. You will need to open the tab for the specific service that you want to modify. If the specific property isn’t in the initially visible list open the ‘Advanced’ area, if it is still not in that list you can add it in the custom areas.
