Expert Contributor

Have you run "Create Root Directory" from HBase's available actions in Cloudera Manager?

This will create the "/hbase" (default value) directory in hdfs that will belong to user hbase and group hbase.

If it is created then check permissions

sudo -u hdfs hdfs dfs -ls /

 

If not, create it (you can do it using Cloudera Manager as mentioned above):

sudo -u hdfs hdfs dfs -mkdir /hbase

sudo -u hdfs hdfs dfs -chown hbase:hbase /hbase

I filed another problem. The title is "

Could not find yarn-site.xml, make sure to deploy yarn client in UI". I guess these problems may be related. Can you please take a look?
