If you want to enable HA for different services (Fir example "Enable NameNode HA") then in that case you can try the following:

 Ambaru UI --> HDFS --> "Service Actions" (Drop Down) --> "Enable Name Node HA"

Please See: https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/Ambari-2.4.1.0/bk_ambari-user-guide/content/how_to_configu...

Similarly, you can enable the HA for other services as well like "Enable ResourceManager HA")

The HA Guide covers this, and yes Ambari can be used to install, configure, and manage the services.

Thanks for your reply. However, I did not see High Availability option in Ambari Installation link. I can install and manage the cluster but I want to install High Available cluster through ambari.
