    Hello Experts,
    I am new in hadoop and exploring it, i am using sandbox for windows. i am trying to load data using Hcat from file, i uplaoded file using file browser, when i try to create a table i am getting below error,
    Delimiter preview error: IOException: No nodes contain this block (error 403). and also when i try to view this file from file browser i am getting following exception you are a Hue admin but not a HDFS superuser (which is “hdfs”). there is something related to permission with user but couldn’t resolve it. i would appreciate if some one can help to make it work around.

    I am using Hue web UI to perform any operation.

    Hi Dipti,

    It seems that you uploaded the file to a directory you don’t have permissions for.
    Can you upload the file again to /tmp in the file browser and then try creating the table from the new file from /tmp
