HDP on Linux – Installation Forum

Rolling restart for config changes?

  • #35962

    I’m using Ambari to manage the cluster.

    Is there a way to pre-stage changes and either rolling restart or see which hosts are out of date and need to be restarted? It’s kind of a big deal to have to stop the entire cluster, then apply the change and start it back up.

    Hi David,

    Unfortunately Ambari does not currently support the ability to pre-stage the changes and “schedule” restarts.
    I will see if this functionality may be included in a future version if you wish?

    Seems like this would be a common use case. Thanks for the reply
