    Hi Srikrishna,

    This is to answer your question on the directory structure. If you want more information you can take a look at our manual installation instructions to understand the configuration directory structure

    All the hadoop jars are in


    Another important location for the core hadoop configurations:




    cut -d: -f1 /etc/passwd

    That command should list all of the users on a linux machine. /etc/passwd contains the config for each user on a machine, if you open the actual file you can get a lot more information if you need it. IBM’s file reference page does a good job of detailing it.

    As for viewing the directory structure, I don’t know a good way right off hand but this answer looks like your question, so I’d start with this answer here (direct link)
