How to add a new slave node to an existing cluster

  • #29205
    RK Kuppala

    I have an existing cluster with the following layout:

    HDDC – Domain Controller
    HDMaster – Master Node, secondary name node, job tracker, etc etc
    HDSlave01, HDSlave02 – Slave nodes

    I have a new VM, HDSlave03 and I would like to add it to the existing cluster as another slave. How do I go about accomplishing it?

    Hi Ranjeeth,

    You can follow the instructions here: on a manual install one node at a time.

    Hi RK,

    How did you make multi-nodes HDP on windows? Is it must be installed on windows cluster? I only could setup one node platform.

    Hi RK and Alex,

    You should be able to use the same clusterproperties.txt files and same directory structure and add new node to slaves nodes to the file. Then execute the same installation command on new host. Once the services are installed you need to start them and verify new node in NameNode UI.

    Hope this helps.
