Removing Kudu masters through Cloudera Manager
In the event that a multi-master deployment has overallocated nodes, you can remove or decommission the unwanted masters through Cloudera Manager.
You can not decommission a leader master role from the cluster. You can only decommission a follower master role. If you want to decommission multiple master roles, do it one by one.
You must have multiple master roles added in your cluster.
- In Cloudera Manager, go to .
- Select the master role instance you want to decommission, and click .
Review the changes in log files, and click Close.
Now, the master role instance is decommissioned from the cluster.
