Ambari provides an option as following to change the hostnames for various hosts:

# ambari-server update-host-names host_names_changes.json

.

In this case we will need to create a JSON file as mentioned in the doc: https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/Ambari-2.6.0.0/bk_ambari-administration/content/ch_changin...

{
  "cluster1" : {
      "c6400.ambari.apache.org" : "c6410.ambari.apache.org",
      "c6401.ambari.apache.org" : "c6411.ambari.apache.org",
     ....
  }
}

.

NOTE: Please make sure to not have Mixed case hostname OR Uppercase Hostname. Please keep all hostnames in Lowercase else you might encounter some issues.
