HADOOP local user requires elevated permissions

  • #16271

    The default permissions given by the install didn’t work when it came to starting the services and give an Access is Denied error (see output from hadoop-namenode-DEMON1.txt log below:)

    Have made .\hadoop part of the local administrators group and now its fine.
