Ambari Forum

remove component/service from host

  • #45848
    Mathieu DESPRIEE


    I moved a service from a host to another. I stopped the service on the first, installed and started on the second : everything’s fine.
    But the service is still referenced as ‘stopped’ on ambari on the first node.
    I would like to remove the component.

    How I can do it ?
    And if not possible with the GUI, is there any other way to do it ?

    Did you ever get an answer to this question?

    it’s possible to remove a service referenced as “stopped”‘ with Ambari API REST
    To remove a service, try something like this :
    curl -u <admin_user_name>:<admin_password> -H ‘X-Requested-By:ambari’ -X DELETE ‘http://<ambari_server_host>:8080/api/v1/clusters/<cluster_name>/services/<service_name>’

    and to remove a service on a specific node, try the following method
    curl -u <admin_user_name>:<admin_password> -H ‘X-Requested-By:ambari’ -X DELETE ‘http://<ambari_server_host>:8080/api/v1/clusters/<cluster_name>/hosts/<hostname>/host_components/<service_component>’


The forum ‘Ambari’ is closed to new topics and replies.
