@J. D. Bacolod There is no such restriction on where it needs to be installed, it should be reachable by the cluster and ideally should be part of same domain. You need to configure Ranger to point it to the Database it will use, the Ranger DB Host Name, DB User Name/Password and install the JDBC driver for that specific database in Ambari. Typical components installed with Ranger are Ranger Plugins for every component/service in the cluster, Ranger Admin, Ranger UserSync and Ranger TagSyncs.
