We're planning to put up a 10-20 node cluster, but for the meantime, we have a single node instance in Azure where we want to practice installing HDP by component. I have consulted the manual installation documentation here
but so far I have not seen the documentation where to install Ambari and then install everything else (except ZooKeeper and core Hadoop) through it.
I'm kind of confused and am not sure which one is better
(1) Should I follow the manual installation instructions from the link above and install Ambari later?
(2) Or, should I install Ambari first and install components through it?
If the second option is the right direction, can you point me to some documentation on how to do it?
Should we come to the part where we need to put up the multiple node cluster, which installation process is better?
What's the pros/cons of doing (1) or (2)?
Appreciate any helpful tips.
@J. D. Bacolod i would suggest you should with 2.
because with option 2 you will have
1.more control to the operations ,
2.there will be less mistakes (negligible) ,
3. you and will be away from mis-configuration headaches.
4.Daily operations and configurations will be quick and simple.
Please find below documentation from hortonworks for automated installation of HDP using ambari.
please go through all the steps carefully.
if you want to go to the part where you want to install multiple nodes then goto step
3. Installing, Configuring, and Deploying a HDP Cluster
