Chapter 8. Moving the Ambari Server

To transfer an Ambari Server that uses the default, embedded, PostgreSQL database from one host to a new host:


  1. Back up current data - from the original Ambari Server database.

  2. Update all Agents - to point to the new Ambari Server.

  3. Install the New Ambari Server - on the new host and populate databases with information from the original Server.

If your Ambari Server is using one of the non-default databases, such as MySQL, Oracle, or an existing PostgreSQL instance, you must use backup, restore, and stop/start procedures specific to that database type.
