Renaming a Cluster

Renaming the cluster allows you to change the display name of the cluster after you have created the cluster. However, this does not change the cluster’s actual, internal name.

Cloudera Manager does not allow you to change the internal name of the cluster because the internal name is used as part of different identifiers throughout the cluster, and it is not possible to change all the configurations safely.

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

  1. Log into Cloudera Manager as an Administrator.
  2. On the Cloudera Manager home page, navigate to the Status tab, click Icon for more options to the right of the cluster name and select Rename Cluster from the list view.
  3. Enter the new cluster name and click Rename Cluster.
