If you want to add more disk to existing datanodes, then you will need to add the new disks to the datanodes and mount them. You will also need to change the property in ambari for datanode dir to include the newly created directories into existing cluster like add the new mountpoints to dfs.datanode.data.dir. and restart the datanode.

Please accept the answer you found most useful
