@PrernaU can you provide more details about this - "The objective it to share the data between tow CDP clusters."


Are you trying to copy data between two distinct clusters? Are you looking at some solution like HDFS Replication task? If yes, please have a look at our  Replication Manager tool in CDP for that purpose.
