Below are the steps to troubleshoot distcp:- 

1. it is not problem with the hdfs or Kerberos or distcp but a MapReduce. 
2. We tried to run a sample MR job to test, then it failed with the following exception Error: Java.io.IOException: initialization of all the collectors failed. Error in last collector was:java.io.IOException: Invalid “mapreduce.task.io.sort.mb”:3276. (The total amount of buffer memory to use while sorting files, in MB). It was expecting less than 2048. Changing this property able to run the distcp smooth. 

I want to take a moment and say thanks to Shelton for responding it on time.

@Arun66 

unfortunately with such a vague and incomplete log, we can't help much.

Questions?

  1. CDH or HWX
  2. Shar e the logs?
  3. Share the command being executed?
  4. Kerberized or not

And any indo you deem important

 

Happy hadooping

Yes, the cluster is kerberized, HWX, HDP 3.1.5. can't seem to find logs for the below operation. Below is the simple command:-

hadoop distcp /user/home/test.txt /tmp/

When i do a ctrl+C to close the long running distcp job abruptly gives me below exception:-

Disctcp is used for inter/Intracluster copy but the command you are running is not wrong because you need the source and destination NameNodes.

$ hadoop distcp /user/home/test.txt /tmp/

The most common use of DistCp is an inter-cluster copy, where you copy from NameNode1[nn1] to Namenode2[nn2] on 2 different clusters and both clusters should be up and running during the process

$ hadoop distcp hdfs://nn1:8020/source hdfs://nn2:8020/destination

Where hdfs://nn1:8020/source is the data source, and hdfs://nn2:8020/destination is the destination. This will expand the namespace under /source on NameNode "nn1" into a temporary file, partition its contents among a set of map tasks, and start copying from "nn1" to "nn2". Note that DistCp requires absolute paths.

 

Personally I think you should use CopyToLocal instead as according to my understanding you are trying to copy a file from hdfs to you local tmp directory

 

Assuming your directory /user/home/ is in hdfs and you are running the command as HDFS user! This will copy the test.txt from hdfs to local /tmp directory

 

$ hdfs dfs -copyToLocal /user/home/test.txt /tmp/

And to successfully copy between 2 kerberized cluster you should perform the Kerberos cross-realm trust for distcp it's simple to setup just follow the guide and you will be fine

 

Please let me know if my assumption is correct

I absolutely agree. Initially i was testing distcp with two trusted clusters with the below command. Since it was getting stuck, did a simple test to copy within the cluster but still the same issue. (All the prerequisites are met to do a distcp)

hadoop distcp hdfs://nn:8020/user/hdfs_home_eid/test.txt hdfs://nn:8020/tmp/

 

just as an FYI. Below is the link has similar issue:- but it dint help me to resolve the problem.

The other thing which i noticed while testing the same in other cluster, distcp is getting stuck when trying to connect to application history server.

20/03/23 20:38:40 INFO client.AHSProxy: Connecting to Application History server at host/ipaddress:10200

@kasa 

Can you share a scrambled version of your krb5.conf from both clusters and the auth-to_local of both clusters

When copying data from a secure cluster to a secure cluster, the following configuration setting is required in the core-site.xml file:

 

<property>
    <name>hadoop.security.auth_to_local</name>
    <value></value>
    <description>Maps kerberos principals to local user names</description>
</property> 

 

Secure-to-Secure: Kerberos Principal Name
Assign the same principle name to applicable NameNodes in the source and destination clusters.

 

distcp hdfs://hdp-2.0-secure hdfs://hdp-2.0-secure

 


The SASL RPC client requires that the remote server’s Kerberos principal must match the server principal in its own configuration. Therefore, the same principal name must be assigned to the applicable NameNodes in the source and the destination cluster.

For example, if the Kerberos principal name of the NameNode in the source cluster is nn/host1@realm, the Kerberos principal name of the NameNode in destination cluster must be nn/host2@realm, rather than nn2/host2@realm.

 

Secure-to-Secure: ResourceManager mapping rules

When copying between two HDP2 secure clusters, further ResourceManager (RM) configuration is required if the two clusters have different realms.

Can you share your hadoop.security.auth_to_local on both clusters, in order for DistCP to succeed, the same RM mapping rule must be used in both clusters. I am assuming the REALMS are TEST.COM and DEV.COM for cluster 1 and 2 respectively

 

<property>
    <name>hadoop.security.auth_to_local</name>
    <value>
    RULE:[2:$1@$0](rm@.*CLUSTER1.TEST.COM)s/.*/yarn/
     RULE:[2:$1@$0](rm@.*CLUSTER2.DEV.COM)s/.*/yarn/
     DEFAULT
    </value>
</property>

 

Can you try that and revert
