Deleting Hosts

Minimum Required Role: Full Administrator. This feature is not available when using Cloudera Manager to manage Data Hub clusters.

You can remove a host from a cluster in two ways:
  • Delete the host entirely from Cloudera Manager.
  • Remove a host from a cluster, but leave it available to other clusters managed by Cloudera Manager.
Both methods decommission the hosts, delete roles, and remove managed service software, but preserve data directories.
