Install the Data Analytics Studio Engine

Data Analytics Studio requires that the DAS Engine be installed on all custers. The engine is installed on the Ambari host, using an Ambari management pack (MPack). An MPack bundles service definitions, stack definitions, and stack add-on service definitions.

This task must be completed on all clusters to be used with DAS.
You must have root access to the Ambari Server host node to perform this task.
