Is it possibile to install services in a specific partition?

New Contributor

I installed and configured a 2.6 HDP cluster from an Ambari Server. For some company security policies I can't install services under / directory (so I can't install services under /etc /usr directories) but I have to install services under a specific partition (/services_mount where I can replicate directories as /services_mount/etc or /services_mount/usr) specifically created by system administrators. Nodes have Centos 7 OS.

System administrators asked me to move all installed services under this partition. I know that I can install specific rpm packages (e.g. manually installing Ambari server and Ambari Agent) in specific directories and partitions, but I wasn't able to find how to install HDP services in specific directories with Ambari server.

Is there a way to meet system administrators request?

All HDP packages primarily gets installed in /usr/hdp location. You can create a mount pointing to disk named /usr/hdp.
