Config not exposed in HMC

  • #6512
    Annie Wong

    Can config not exposed in HMC be customized? For instance, I’d like to configure rack awareness.

    Also, can services be stopped/started on a per node basis in HMC? It seems only cluster-wide stopping/starting of services is supported.

    As of now, you have to edit configuration files manually.

    Thank you!

    If I edit the config file manually to set some stuff, then use HMC to adjust some other settings, will my manual changes be overridden when the changes set via HMC are applied? Thx.
