    When the ambari is installed, many users are created, one of these users is HDFS User(hdfs). Does anyone know the password of the user hdfs? Thanks a lot.

    Hi Wang,
    What are you actually trying to do ? If you are logged into a node within the cluster that is root, you should just be able to do an su to hdfs.

    Regards,
    Robert
