Can I manually edit configuration files if I use Ambari GUI?

New Contributor

I am new to Ambari ... It looks like it is not allowed to manually edit configuration files like /etc/hive/conf/hive-site.xml. I tried to make some changes but after I re-started Hive via Ambari - all my changes are gone. Can somebody comment on this and point me to some Amabari "best practices" documentation?

Re: Can I manually edit configuration files if I use Ambari GUI?

Hi @Oleg Khaykin ,

If your Cluster is managed by ambari then you are not supposed to edit the configs in the cluster manually.

you can perform the editing of configuration of your Hive service by logging into ambari-ui and clicking on Services -> Hive -> configs -> custom hive-site and edit the config as you require You can read more at
