File explorer in HDP2

    First of all : I am VERY new to haddop.

    In the HDP Sandbox, there is a UI for ‘File Explorer’. I can’t find it in HDP2 (installed via Ambari), I guess this is normal. Is ther a way to install this kind of UI on the platrform?

    Hi Clement,

    You can browse the filesystem from the Namenode UI, or you can install HUE.
    The documentation for installing HUE is found in the manual installation guide – http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-

    If you have any issues with that then it would be best to raise a post in the HUE forum.
