HDFS Forum

No FileSystem for scheme: hdfs

  • #51883

    I have a test program that uses FileSystem api to CRUD files on hdfs. This works well with HDP1.3, but when I use it with HDP2.0 (sandbox), I get the exception “ No FileSystem for scheme: hdfs”. Since there is no hadoop-core.jar anymore, I have tried different combinations of jars to make it work. Currently, I have the following (and some of the related dependencies not listed here), but I can’t make it work yet :

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    I met the same error. The reason was that some jar were missing in my CLASSPATH (hadoop-hdfs’s ones).
    Hope this will help you…

    export CLASSPATH=.:/usr/lib/hadoop/*:/usr/lib/hadoop/lib/*:/usr/lib/hadoop-hdfs/*:/usr/lib/hadoop-hdfs/lib/*:/usr/share/java/*
