Chapter 4. Installing the HDF Management Pack

About This Task

A management pack (mpack) bundles service definitions, stack definitions, and stack add-on service definitions so they do not need to be included with the Ambari core functionality and can be updated in between major releases.


  1. Stop the Ambari Server.

    ambari-server stop
  2. Download the HDF management pack. You can find the download location for your operating system in the HDF Release Notes.

  3. Copy the bundle to /tmp on the node where you installed Ambari.

  4. Run the following commands to install the management pack.

    ambari-server install-mpack \
    --mpack=/tmp/hdf-ambari-mpack-<version>.tar.gz \
  5. Start the Ambari Server.

    ambari-server start
