Not able to create jobhsitory server using curl command

New Contributor

Hi Team,

I am trying to move mapreduce history server to another instance using curl command .

curl -u admin:admin -H "X-Requested-By:ambari" -i -X POST -d  '{ "Credential" : { "principal" : "<orincipal", "key" : "<keyadmin>", "type" : "persisted" } }' '{RequestInfo":{"context":"Install MapReduce "}, "Body":{"HostRoles":{"state":"INSTALLED"}}}' 'http://node1:8080/api/v1/clusters/<clustername>/services/MAPREDUCE2'.


Unfortunately I am getting below error::

curl: (3) [globbing] nested braces not supported at pos 16

HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request
