How to setup Ambari with an external Postgresql db with SSL/TLS required

When installing a cluster with a very secure environement you could want to setup an external Postgresql cluster database with HA and a connection pooler like pgbouncer for reducing the impact of opening new sessions on Postgresql.

All the connections should be with SSL/TLS :

Client -> Pgbouncer and Pgbouncer -> Postgresql

The problem was that configuring Ambari with the ambari-server setup don't give you the oportunity to setup SSL connection and ambari is not able to connect to the database.

You will find this error in the logs :

So, the question is how to setup your ambari server for connecting to the database without desactivating SSL mode ?

Re: How to setup Ambari with an external Postgresql db with SSL/TLS required

Hi

Here is the answer :

After setup your postgresql external database access with ambari-server setup, you have to edit the file /etc/ambari-server/conf/ambari.properties and modify the server.jdbc.url parameter to add the activation of the ssl like this :

server.jdbc.url=jdbc:postgresql://<HOSTNAME>:<PORT>/ambari?ssl=true

Once done, you are able to start the ambari installation with a SSL connection to your external Postgresql database.

For more information on all the options you could add on the connect string, you have the jdbc.postgresql documentation here :

https://jdbc.postgresql.org/documentation/head/connect.html#ssl
