Installing the HDF Management Pack on an HDF Cluster

A management pack (mpack) bundles service definitions, stack definitions, and stack add-on service definitions so they do not need to be included with the Ambari core functionality and can be updated in between major releases.

  1. Back up your Ambari resources folder:
    cp -r /var/lib/ambari-server/resources /var/lib/ambari-server/resources.backup
  2. Download the Hortonworks HDF management pack. You can find the download location for your operating system in the HDF Release Notes.
  3. Copy the bundle to /tmp on the node where you installed Ambari.
  4. Install the management pack:
    ambari-server install-mpack \
    --mpack=/tmp/hdf-ambari-mpack-<version>.tar.gz \
  5. Restart the Ambari server:
    ambari-server restart
