    +## <a id="manual-cfg-norestart"></a>Updating HAWQ Configuration Without Cluster
Restart
    +There may be circumstances, such as during dynamic cluster expansion, when you must update
HAWQ configuration parameters but cannot tolerate cluster downtime in your Ambari-managed
cluster. In these situations, perform the following workaround to update and reload HAWQ configuration
changes without a complete cluster restart.
    +
    +**Note**: Use this procedure for setting or updating only those HAWQ server configuration
parameters with a set classification of reload.
    +
    +1.  Use the Ambari console UI to set and save the desired HAWQ configuration parameter(s)
via the **HAWQ** service **Settings**, **Configs >Settings**, and/or **Configs >Advanced**
tabs. Make sure to note the configuration parameter names and new values. You may need to
hover the mouse over the configuration field to identify the HAWQ parameter name.
    +    
    +    **Note**: After updating the configuration parameters, do *not* restart the HAWQ
service. 
    +
    +1.  Use HAWQ command line utilities to update the same HAWQ configuration parameters:
    +    1. Log in to the HAWQ master host as a HAWQ administrator and source greenplum_path.sh:
    +
    +        ``` shell
    +        $ ssh gpadmin@<master>
    +        gpadmin@master$ source /usr/local/hawq/greenplum_path.sh
    +        ```
    +        
    +    2. Identify the current value of the HAWQ configuration parameter:
    +
    +        ``` shell
    +        gpadmin@master$ hawq config -s <parameter_name>
    +        ```
    +        
    +    3. Set the configuration parameter to the new value:
    +
    +        ``` shell
    +        gpadmin@master$ hawq config -c <parameter_name> -v <new_value>
    +        ```
    +        
    +        Perform Steps 2 and 3 for each configuration parameter you set or updated via
Ambari.
    +        
    +3. Reload the HAWQ configuration; this operation does not restart the cluster:
    +
    +    ``` shell
    +    gpadmin@master$ hawq stop cluster --reload
    +    ```
    +    
    +4. Verify that each parameter was updated:
    +
    +    ```shell
    +    gpadmin@master$ hawq config -s <parameter_name>
    +    ```

    I guess I was misunderstanding something from the earlier workaround:  "When the HAWQ
service is ready to be restarted via Ambari, Ambari will refresh the new configurations."
 I guess I'm not entirely sure what that means either.  So when exactly is the change "complete"?
