Multiple website views of cloudera manager?


I'm working out how to configure a Cloudera Express 5.7.1 installation with High Availability/Automatic Failover.


Generally the 7180/cmf/home managing website UI is running on the active Namenode. Is there any way to have a website also running on the standby/failover node? As it is, testing the the Automatic Failover (by shutting down the server running the active Namenode) means I no longer have the UI available as well.


Sure I can use CLI hdfs commands on the standby (now active) node, but I'm a bit surprised that for all my googling, I haven't come across anything easily set up for this scenario.  Even a read-only version that runs on the standby failover node would be very useful.
