Hmaster HA via an API call

  • #15987

    Hi !

    I know for the moment it’s not possible to deploy other Hmaster instances with Ambari Web UI.

    I was wondering if there were any possibilities to do that via an API call. For example, if I want to deploy another HBASE_MASTER on a node which is just running a zookeeper instance, I try something like below but it fails with a 404 error :

    [root@oben**** ambari-server]# curl –user admin:admin -d ‘{“HostRoles”:{“cluster_name” : “hadoop_poc”,”component_name”: “HBASE_MASTER”,”host_name”:”mytestnode.priv”}}’ -X PUT http://oben****:8001/api/v1/clusters/hadoop_poc/hosts/mytestnode.priv/host_components/HBASE_MASTER{
    “status” : 404,
    “message” : “org.apache.ambari.server.controller.spi.NoSuchResourceException: The requested resource doesn’t exist: ServiceComponentHost not found, clusterName=hadoop_poc, serviceName=HBASE, serviceComponentName=HBASE_MASTER, hostName=mytestnode.priv”

    So I took an alternative way by replaying the puppet manifest of the main Hbase master visible in Ambari, on my testnode where I want to deploy my second hmaster.

    (I do something like :
    export RUBYLIB=’/usr/lib/ambari-agent/lib/puppet-2.7.9/lib/:/usr/lib/ambari-agent/lib/facter-1.6.10/lib’
    /usr/lib/ambari-agent/lib/ruby-1.8.7-p370/bin/ruby /usr/lib/ambari-agent/lib/puppet-2.7.9/bin/puppet apply –confdir=/var/lib/ambari-agent/puppet –detailed-exitcodes /var/lib/ambari-agent/data/mymanifestwhichdeployshmaster.pp

    It’s working and I get a new Hmaster automatically configured on another node, working in a cluster with the other Hmaster, but it looks like a quick & dirty way to achieve Hmaster HA for the moment.

    Many thanks for your answer,

    Ambari in it’s current release not supporting services addition or moving to different node.
    Your manual trick may work, but it is not supported.

    Thank you!
