Configuring Ambari View Instances
When creating a View instance, you specify some basic configuration information about the view and configure the view to communicate with a cluster.
Based on the resources managed by your Ambari Server, choose one of three options when completing the Cluster Configuration section; Local Cluster, Remote Cluster, or Custom. Use the following descriptions to guide your choice.
- Local Cluster
- If you are configuring a view instance in an Ambari Server that is also managing a cluster, you can select Local Cluster. When you select this option, Ambari automatically determines the cluster configuration properties required.
- Remote Cluster
- If your Ambari Server is not managing a cluster, then you must select either
Remote Cluster or Custom.
If you plan to configure a view to work with a cluster that is remote from an Ambari Server and that cluster is being managed by Ambari, you should select Remote Cluster.
Registering a Remote Cluster enables the Remote Cluster option. When you select the Remote Cluster option for a view instance, Ambari automatically determines the cluster configuration properties required for the view instance. Be sure the Remote Cluster includes all services required for the view you are configuring.
- If your cluster is remote from and not being managed by the Ambari Server running the view, you must select Custom and then manually configure the view to work with the cluster.
You can use the following table to help determine which options are available for view configuration:
|If you are working in this scenario...||Choose this option...|
|Your cluster is managed by a local Ambari Server that is also running the view||Local Cluster|
Your cluster is managed by Ambari and your cluster
is remote from the standalone Ambari Server running the view
|Your cluster is remote from the standalone Ambari Server running the view and your cluster is not managed by Ambari.||Custom|
