It did not work because stop command did not complete successfully.
"message" : "org.apache.ambari.server.controller.spi.SystemException: An internal system exception occurred: Could not delete service component from cluster. To remove service component, it must be in DISABLED/INIT/INSTALLED/INSTALL_FAILED/UNKNOWN/UNINSTALLED/INSTALLING state
The only option was to remove this component completely from ambari database and restart ambari-server/agent procs.
Here is the short summary of what commands I ran:
[root@hdpambari ~]# psql ambari ambari
Password for user
"help" for help.
ambari=> delete from hostcomponentstate where component_name='STORM_REST_API';
