I have a 2 node cluster HDP2 installed thru Ambari on Linux Rhel 5.8
Server 1 hbase master and region server.
I have data nodes on both the servers,but I did not install region server on server 2
Everything is working fine. Replication factor is default 3
Question is what’s the downside of not having a region server on server 2?
Can I add the component thru Ambari as I see that option, when doing so, do I need to bring down all the services and then add?
Any specific configuration changes I need to do after adding the region manager or will Ambari take care of it.?
