I am currently preparing for the HDP Certified Administrator exam, and have reviewed the exam objectives located here:
Some of the "learn more" links take you to the related sections in the Ambari User's Guide.
However, there are other tasks (NameNode HA, Resource Manager HA, Rack Awareness etc.) which can be accomplished using Ambari, but "learn more" provides the manual steps for completing the task.
Does this mean that using Ambari for such tasks in the exam is prohibited, and I should focus on learning the manual steps for configuring NameNode HA and so on?
I've taken the practice exam, and it doesn't place any restrictions on how you perform a given task, but I don't know how close to the real exam these example tasks are.
Any pointers are much appreciated
