    Hello, when I try to append “/home/hdfs/data” to the dfs.datanode.data.dir property in Ambari, it tells me that I cannot start with “/home(s)”?

    Why is this? I’d like to use the free space I have on my /home partition for HDFS.

    Hi Sean,
    I believe this jira might help https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMBARI-2996. It states there were problems in using the /home directory, hence they have put some checks to prevent it. You can try using a different mount.

    Regards,
    Robert
