I succesfully installed HDP for Windows on Windows Server 2012 R2 running in a Hyper-V virtual machine. The machine name of the guest virtual machine is “Hadoop”, and I used “hadoop” as the hostname in clusterproperties.txt. I also added “hadoop” to the hosts file on the host OS. I added firewall rules in the guest OS to access the Hadoop web UI from the host OS
Almost everything seems to work well, e.g. I can browse http://hadoop:50070 on the host machine, and I see the web UI of the Hadoop service. Except for the job tracker history web UI (http://hadoop:51111/jobhistoryhome.jsp).
When I change the configuration value “mapred.job.tracker.http.address” from “hadoop:51111″ to “0.0.0.0:51111″ in mapred-site.xml, and then restart the jobtracker service, I can access it. But after a restart I can no longer access it. But if I then change the configuration value back, and restart the service, I can access it again. And then again, after a system restart, I can no longer access it.
How should I configure my single node system to be able to access the job history web UI.
