HDP on Linux – Installation Forum

HDP Installer

  • #11105
    Rajan Ananthan

    I am using the gsInstaller to deploy a single node cluster on a Cent OS 6.3 Virtual Machine using VMWare Player.

    On Step 7 of the tutorial, I receive the following error/failures when running the script as per the log file:

    Starting All Hadoop Services
    CMD -> su – hdfs -c ‘yes Y | hadoop –config /etc/hadoop/conf namenode -format’;
    In nodes: localhost
    CMD -> su – hdfs -c ‘/usr/lib/hadoop/bin/ –config /etc/hadoop/conf start namenode ‘
    In nodes: localhost
    localhost: starting namenode, logging to /var/lib/hadoop/log/hdfs/hadoop-hdfs-namenode-localhost.localdomain.out

    Do you have JDK installed on your system?
    Why you use gsInstaller?
    HMC is a way to go, please, use it instead.

    Rajan Ananthan

    Yes, I have the JDK installed. Less is hidden behind the UI and I was told it is convenient for a single cluster install.

    Sasha J

    Based on the error message, your JDK is not functioning.
    And what do you mean by ” Less is hidden behind the UI” and who told you such things?
