HDFS connection error when reading in pyspark

avatar

Hi,

@Jay Kumar SenSharma

I'm getting following error when trying to access a file on HDFS. I am able to ping "node1.mydomain" from other machine where this pyspark script is running.

File "/opt/<mysoftware>/depLibs/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/hdfs/client.py", line 44, in _on_error
    raise HdfsError(message)
HdfsError: <HTML><HEAD>

When Spark Job Runs then it might be executing on various cluster hosts (nodes) so you will need to make sure that the DNS entry (or the "/etc/hosts") file entry is configured properly for all the Hosts present inside the cluster to resolve the "node1.mydomain"

.

So please check if you have correct "/etc/hosts" file entry in all the cluster ndoes to resolved the "node1.mydomain" as following: (I am assuming that 10.10.10.10 is an example IP address for your node1.mydomain) Please replace the IP Address with the actual IP address.

10.10.10.10  node1.mydomain

@Jay Kumar SenSharma Thanks for your reply. Yes I have entries in /etc/hosts. All of this was working before I restarted all services of HortonWorks

Looks like in your Network the Hostname recognization is happening via DNS Server instead of "etc/hosts" file.

If it is failing for any particular Host then another possible cause any be that any specific node of your cluster might have some environmental difference between that node compared to the rest of the cluster that might be causing DNS resolution to not work properly.


The Network infrastructure team might help in resolving the DNS issues. As i suspect that it might be related to the DNS settings.

Wow!! good to share the findings. Yes, the explicit proxy setting will force the cluster ndoes to pass their requests via Network Proxy and which might not be aware of the "node1.mydomain". So good to remove the proxy settings.

It will be also great to close this thread by clicking on the "Accept" button so that other HCC users can quickly browse the solution when they encounter the same issue.
