Subject Re: How to update service state on specific hosts?
Date Tue, 08 Oct 2013 20:22:15 GMT
Hi Christian,

If I understand correctly you want to set the state of a component on a 
specific host.  If so, here is an example from the docs ...

Start the NAMENODE component by updating its state to 'STARTED'.

PUT api/v1/clusters/c1/hosts/hostname/host_components/NAMENODE

   "Requests" : {
     "id" : 12,
     "status" : "InProgress"
