When installing HDB/HAWQ on Sandbox, it is necessary to relocate the default Ambari postgres database to a postgres instance running on a different port.

The following script performs the move in a mostly automated fashion.

When prompted by ambari-server setup, select option 4 for the database configuration and fill in the details.

Note that this is only intended for Sandbox. Please do not use in production.

#!/usr/bin/env bash

# Change as needed

PGDATA=/var/lib/pgsql/ambari
AMBARI_WEB_USER=admin
AMBARI_WEB_PW=admin

AMBARI_DB_PW=bigdata
