I am working on a project SAP-Hadoop integration. Requirement is I need to add a windows server to hadoop cluster. Wondering if I can install ambari-agent on windows machine and install hadoop clients on that server which will then be used by SAP BODS to connect to hdfs and hive
@Prakash Punj Based on the following documentation ambari does not support Windows:
Also my understanding is that underlying operative system type and version should be same in major versions and hopefully minor versions as well. So mixing Windows with Linux does not sound like a supported/tested type of scenario.
Instead why don't you use ODBC/JDBC to connect to hive. And WebHDFS/Knox for hdfs?
