When I shut down Nagios from the Ambari Web UI, modify the file hadoop-services.cfg, save it and open it, new settings are there.

However, when I start the Nagios again (from the Ambari Web UI) and open the file hadoop-services.cfg, changes are lost.

Any ideas on how to prevent this?



I saw somewhere that a template (which Ambari uses to generate hadoop-services.cfg file) is located in:


However, I do not have the folder "puppet" and everything after it.


Solution was to stop nagios service from command line, using:

service nagios stop

instead of doing it from the Ambari Web UI. Then the changes to the hadoop-services.cfg should be made and finally the nagios service should be started again using

service nagios start

Afterwards, changes are persisted.
