Could not resolve host: sandbox.hortonworks.com when trying to upload a file.

Could not resolve host: sandbox.hortonworks.com when trying to upload a file.

I try to upload a file to hdfs through webHDFS . Before file update i made a directory with webHDFS, "testDIR" in /tmp/testDIR and it works.

First command is :

 curl -i -X PUT "http://192.168.1.112:50070/webhdfs/v1/tmp/testDIR/test.txt?op=CREATE"

For the second command i'll use url from "Location" as in the instructions.

Second commnd :

curl -i -X PUT -T test.txt "http://sandbox.hortonworks.com:50075/webhdfs/v1/tmp/testDIR/test.txt?op=CREATE&namenoderpcaddress=sandbox.hortonworks.com:8020&createflag=&createparent=true&overwrite=false".

This command response is : "

Could not resolve host: sandbox.hortonworks.com

What can i do ?

@Mihai Morareanu use the IP address url that worked or add sandbox.hortonworks.com to /etc/hosts.

@Artem Ervits sandbox.hortonworks.com it's already in /etc/hosts and the URL is the same as in directory creation request. Do you have other sugestions?

your webhdfs Port is different between two commands.

The port must be different . Finnaly i can upload files. After the first call you must take what is in the "Location" parameter of the response and make another call with the file (-T file) but instead of "sandbox.hortonworks.com" you must use machine ip.

Here is an example:

****************************

curl -i -X PUT "http://192.168.1.113:50070/webhdfs/v1/tmp/testDIR/test.txt?op=CREATE&user.name=hdfs"
