    Hi Michael,

    You should be able to add node name to SLAVE_NODES in cluster.properties file and rerun the installer.

    Hope this helps.



    Could anyone elaborate on the process to remove HDP (on Windows) nodes please? Thanks.


    Hi Benjamin,

    You can go to Add/Remove Programs, and uninstall from there.
    Then you can remove your hadoop directory.
