HDP on Windows – Installation Forum

Launch From Windows To Linux Cluster

    I’m trying to get some examples running. I got HDP2.2 installed and can submit jobs but they all fail on container startup with bash code 127 (command not found). When inspecting the generated script, it looks like {{JAVA_HOME}} isn’t getting replaced properly. I’ve tried everything I can think of. Any thoughts? What do I need to do in order to make it set this variable?

    Hadoop Command (with simplified map script, but even this reproduces the error):
    jar hadoop-streaming-2.3.0-cdh5.0.0.jar -input “/data/test.csv” -output “/output.txt” -mapper “cat” -numReduceTasks 0 -verbose
    Snippet from
    exec /bin/bash -c “{{JAVA_HOME}}/bin/java -Dlog4…
    Error from log file:
    /bin/bash: {{JAVA_HOME}}/bin/java: No such file or directory

    Hi Ian,

    Do you mean HDP 2.1.2 ?
    Have you set JAVA_HOME correctly to C:\java in your system environment variables and added java to the PATH ?
    Also hadoop-streaming-2.3.0-cdh5.0.0.jar is a Cloudera jar.
    Did you install HDP or CDH?

    So I got this working and figured it out. The issue is you need Yarn 2.4 running on the server for it to work properly (pretty much any distribution I think).

    I had been trying with the cloudera streaming jar, and the hortonworks streaming jar thinking it’s a client side problem, but it actually required a server side upgrade to be compliant. Debugging container startup issues are a bit of a nightmare though.

The forum ‘HDP on Windows – Installation’ is closed to new topics and replies.
