    Hi Lebing,

    Which configuration to /tmp are you referring to?

    ambari will scp several shell script to /tmp and launch them. our /tmp is mounted with noexec option.

    HI Lebing,

    Ambari currently does not support setting different /tmp location. On the other hand I think that Hadoop modules will use /tmp so this will not just effect Ambari.

    Hope this helps.
