Cloudera Director client - cluster extension

[ Edited ]


  I deployed a cluster defined by a custom json file using cloudera director command line (standalone mode, bootstrap command). The process did not went through the cloudera director server, therefore I choosed just a client option.


In the time between I have added several gateways and services into the cluster via Cloudera Manager. Now I want to add more worker nodes with the boostrap.


Is it possible to somehow extend the cluster again via this json config file submitting to a new cloudera director client? (The original launch node is gone). What will happen with the differences? If the cluster now has a gateway which is not in the json, or the node has a service which was not stated in the json (such as Sentry)?


Or what is the best way to have a cluster extensible?
