Systems team were on to me there and the Apache Ambari environment still has default credentials enabled in our environment. We think it was installed as a component of HDFS/Hadoop (distributed VA) but unsure what it's used for.
Anyone know what Ambari is used for in SAS and if we changed the default credentials, do we need to update any config files anywhere to keep it working?
When SAS Deployment Wizard runs, it asks for the Ambari admin password to be able to get information about your deployment so it can configure SAS to work with your Hadoop cluster properly. That password is not saved after the configuration is run so you should be able to change the Ambari admin password without affecting your SAS deployment.
