Adopting new hostname changes in Cloudera Manager

Explorer

Aloha. After a recent server migration, all of the hostnames on our cluster got a slight modification. After getting the Cloudera Manager Server to connect to it's required database correctly, it still wants to connect to the old hostnames for everything else in the cluster. Everything is already configured for them to work together, so it should be as simple as updating the URL to connect to the hostname (rather than reinstalling cloudera-scm-agent, etc). Is there a way to do this from within Cloudera Manager?

How?

Each host's name is stored in CM's backend database with an UUID attached, please refer to table HOSTS. Example as below:

 

HOST_ID: 12
OPTIMISTIC_LOCK_VERSION: 148
HOST_IDENTIFIER: bfaf4b71-01e2-4157-b46f-d1c13566b69a
NAME: host-xxx-xxx.xxx
IP_ADDRESS: xx.xx.xx.xx
RACK_ID: /default
STATUS: NA
CONFIG_CONTAINER_ID: 1
MAINTENANCE_COUNT: 0
DECOMMISSION_COUNT: 0
CLUSTER_ID: 1
NUM_CORES: 1
TOTAL_PHYS_MEM_BYTES: 1929342976
PUBLIC_NAME: NULL
PUBLIC_IP_ADDRESS: NULL
CLOUD_PROVIDER: NULL

 


Where HOST_IDENTIFIER is the UUID, and is stored under /var/lib/cloudera-scm-agent/uuid on each host. Maybe you can try to update the table here for NAME field and see if that can help?
