Subject [DISCUSS] AMBARI-21674 (Ambari to support Hybrid cluster).
Date Mon, 11 Sep 2017 06:38:48 GMT
Hi All,

Need to propose a feature for Ambari to support hybrid cluster. Hybrid 
cluster means having multiple hosts with different OS architectures. 
Examples as given below: 
1.      Set up Ambari cluster with 2 RHEL-7 x86 and 1 RHEL-7 Power hosts. 
2.      Add a RHEL-7 Power host to existing Ambari cluster of RHEL-7 x86 
hosts and vice versa.

We have setup a Hybrid cluster manually with x86_64 and ppc64le hosts with 
some workarounds and were able to run Hadoop jobs successfully.
Workarounds include:
1.      Setting up yum repos for Ambari, HDP & HDP-UTILS.
2.      Use of same JAVA_HOME on all the hosts (note that ppc host will 
have different path for default JDK as that of x86).

JIRA has been already created which links to AMBARI-21674 (Ambari to 
support Hybrid cluster). Hope to get some comments with questions and 
suggestions about it. We have been exploring the design and code changes 
for some time now.
