    Hello,
    We’re testing HDP2.1, we cannot find the webhdfs daemon (port 14000) even though webhdfs is enabled in HDFS.
    Another thing is that hadoop-httpfs cannot start after being installed from HDP 2.1 repo it fails with the following message :

    /etc/init.d/hadoop-httpfs status
    /etc/init.d/hadoop-httpfs: line 40: /usr/lib/bigtop-utils/bigtop-detect-javahome: No such file or directory
    Hadoop httpfs is dead and pid file exists [FAILED]

    We’re trying to setup HUE with namenode HA, that’s why we’re setting up hadoop-httpfs and webhdfs.

    Thanks,

    I had the exact same error when installing zookeeper-server.
    So far I have not been able to find the right bigtop rpm that is needed.
    I suspect that the bigtop-utils is simply missing from HDP 2.1 due to a simple omission from the guys at Hortonworks.

    My quick fix that seems to work:
    Create a file called
    /usr/lib/bigtop-utils/bigtop-detect-javahome
    And put this one line in it (the value may be different depending on the Java version you use):
    export JAVA_HOME=”/usr/java/default/”

    Hi all,

    Same issue here, HTTPFS worked well until HDP 2.1, upgrade to 2.1.2.0 does not solve the problem.
    If anyone could help to start HTTPFS please let me know.

    Thanks
