Error HDFS within setup services

Error HDFS within setup services

Expert Contributor

I proceeded to setup of my cluster and I configured all services in Ambari Wizard, but when I try to deploy these services I got this error by HDFS, What should I do to fix it??

Are you installing as root or another user? Have you validated the directory permissions to make sure there is no permission issue blocking the installation? Are there additional details in the ambari-server or ambari-agent logs?

@yassine:

check the permission on the entire path 'usr/hdp/current/hadoop-client/conf' on all cluster nodes, and make sure hdfs user can access it.
