Ambari Metrics - Switching from Embedded to Distributed Mode Fails

Re: Ambari Metrics - Switching from Embedded to Distributed Mode Fails

Awesome. The referred Articles helped me solve my ambari-metrics restart issue.

Here is the short form of the steps

1) Stop Ambari Metrics Collector and Grafana

2) Backup the embedded hbase and hbase-temp folders and deleted them. (The paths could differ from default. So I looked up the hbase.rootdir and hbase.tmp.dir properties in Ambari > Ambari Metrics > Config for the appropriate path)

3) Restart Ambari Metrics Collector and Grafana

The Ambari Metrics Collector Started correctly without any errors.

Note: As you may have suspected, by deleting the existing hbase folder, you will loose the metrics history.
