Removing host from Ambari

  • #43213
    Louis Long

    I was in the middle of adding a host to my HDP 1.3.2 cluster and I encountered a problem. The host showed as added in Ambari even though no components were installed/configured. I went through the decommissioning process and now I’m trying to re-add the node but Ambari still shows it as a node in the cluster. How can I remove the entry from Ambari so I can go through the Add New Host process with that server. I can’t rename the server I’m trying to add. Thanks

    Hi Louis,

    This functionality will be available in next release of Ambari. For now please try renaming the host.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Seth. Glad to hear it will be available soon. Will it be available in the version used with HDP 2 or beyond? Regards

    Hi, the “delete host” capability will work with HDP 1 and HDP 2 stacks in Ambari.

    Thanks Jeff. I didn’t see it in HDP 1. I’ve just installed an HDP 2 cluster so I’ll try it there. Regards
