  2. From the Actions menu, click Add Service.
  3. From the services list, select HBase and click Next.
  4. Select the location to install HBase Master.
  5. Select the nodes to install HBase Region Servers.
  6. Review the configuration details and modify it based on your performance tuning needs and then click Next.
    You can customize the services later as well.
