  5. You are then prompted to select the host where Ranger Admin will be installed. This host should have DB admin access to the Ranger DB host and User Sync. Notice in the figure below that both the Ranger Admin and Ranger User Sync services will be installed on the primary node in the cluster (c6401.ambari.apache.org in the example shown below).

    Make a note of the Ranger Admin host for use in subsequent installation steps. Click Next when finished to continue with the installation.


    The Ranger Admin and Ranger User Sync services must be installed on the same cluster node.
