Failed to run MapReduce job

  • #47285
    Gabriel Ciuloaica


    I have installed Hortonworks on AWS using Ambari. Without any extra configuration than defaults, I’m trying to run a MapReduce job that needs to connect to a kafka broker on a different box. From same machine I can successfully connect and consume messages from kafka broker, but only when I’m running a similar code from hadoop, I’m getting the following exception:

    14/01/22 19:10:30 INFO mapreduce.JobSubmitter: Cleaning up the staging area /user/root/.staging/job_1390409931641_0005

    Any clues?
