    I’m installing HDP on Windows. There is a topic named “Configure Ports”. Can anybody please let me know what it is and what I’m supposed to do as part of HDP installation? (there are sub topics like HDFS port, MapReduce port, Hive port and Templeton port )

    Hello Santosh,

    This section specifies which ports must be opened for which ecosystem components to communicate with each other. Most of the times they are open on the system unless you have hadoop already installed running.

    Also, these are default ports which are there in the configuration files.

    You need not worry about this and go ahead with the installation.

    Best Regards,



    Hi Santosh,

    Thanks for trying out HDP for Windows.

    The “Configure Ports” section of the documentation is only used if you have some other program using one or more of the ports listed. Most of the time you can just ignore this section and proceed with the install.
