Here are the steps to get pyspark working on SHC

a) add the following into Ambari -> Spark -> Configs -> Advanced spark-env -> spark-env template

export SPARK_CLASSPATH=/usr/hdp/current/hbase-client/lib/hbase-common.jar:/usr/hdp/current/hbase-client/lib/hbase-client.jar:/usr/hdp/current/hbase-client/lib/hbase-server.jar:/usr/hdp/current/hbase-client/lib/hbase-protocol.jar:/usr/hdp/current/hbase-client/lib/guava-12.0.1.jar:/usr/hdp/current/hbase-client/lib/htrace-core-3.1.0-incubating.jar:/usr/hdp/

b) kinit as e.g. hbase user

c) run

$ pyspark --packages com.hortonworks:shc:1.0.0-1.6-s_2.10 --repositories

d) call each line separately:

from pyspark.sql import Row 
data = range(0,255) 
rdd = sc.parallelize(data).map(lambda i : Row(name=i,age=i)) 
import json 
cat = json.dumps({"table":{"namespace":"default", "name":"dk", "tableCoder":"PrimitiveType"},"rowkey":"key","columns":{"name":{"cf":"rowkey", "col":"key", "type":"string"},"age":{"cf":"cf1", "col":"age", "type":"string"}}}) 

NOTE: running the last command from above the following error comes up:

17/04/18 15:39:57 INFO ClientCnxn: Session establishment complete on server localhost/, sessionid = 0x15b42da54290012, negotiated timeout = 60000

To get around the problem, do the following:

go to Ambari -> HBase -> Configs -> Advanced tab -> Advanced hbase-site
change the value of zookeeper.znode.parent 
FROM /hbase-unsecure 
TO /hbase 
save the changes 
restart all required services 
re-run the pyspark -> re-run point c) and d)

e) test from the HBase shell

[root@dan261 ~]# hbase shell
HBase Shell; enter 'help<RETURN>' for list of supported commands.
Type "exit<RETURN>" to leave the HBase Shell

Initiating client connection, connectString=localhost:2181 sessionTimeout=90000 watcher=hconnection-0x1c84d64d0x0, quorum=localhost:2181, baseZNode=/hbase

->ERROR ConnectionManager$HConnectionImplementation: The node /hbase is not in ZooKeeper. It should have been written by the master. Check the value configured in 'zookeeper.znode.parent'. There could be a mismatch with the one configured in the master.

I am getting the following error while trying the above example code. My hbase-site.xml contains zookeeper.znode.parent ='/hbase-unsecure'.

what might be the problem??

Thanks in advance.
