    • RedHat/CentOS:
      yum install mapr-hbase-master
    • SUSE:
      zypper install mapr-hbase-master
  2. On each planned HBase RegionServer node, install mapr-hbase-regionserver:
    • Ubuntu:
      apt-get install mapr-hbase-regionserver
    • RedHat/CentOS:
      yum install mapr-hbase-regionserver
    • SUSE:
      zypper install mapr-hbase-regionserver
  3. On all HBase nodes, run -R:.
    $ /opt/mapr/server/ -R
  4. The warden picks up the new configuration and automatically starts the new services. When it is convenient, restart the warden:
