we have deployed two httpfs in CDH 5.5.2 with CM 5.5.3 , and we have balanced the 2 services with an external loadbalancer, and populate in Cm => HDFS => scope = HttpFS the "httpfs Load Balancer" with loadbalancer:port. We tested it with curl and it's working like a charm.
After that in CM=> Hue , it's possible to choose the load balancer for browsing hdfs from hue, by the way, if it's selected, the CM will give an error of "configuration error:null".
Any idea ? Do we have hit a bug of CM ?
