HTTPFS Installation Failure / Start-up Failure

Hi there,

I have a 6-node HDP cluster, and am trying to install and use the HTTPFS server. I have enabled NameNode HA on my cluster. I followed this article by @David Streever: HTTPFS - Configure and Run with HDP

The error I'm getting is the following. I have played around with this a ton, and this is actually the third time I've tried installing it on a fresh node. I am hoping someone can help, as I am stumped.

[root@xxxxxxxxxxxx sbin]# ./httpfs.sh run
/usr/hdp/current/hadoop-httpfs/sbin/httpfs.sh.distro: line 32: /usr/hdp/current/hadoop/libexec/httpfs-config.sh: No such file or directory

After seeing this, I thought the first problem seemed to be "Tomcat Native library... was not found ...". So I ran yum install tomcat, which did install things. But then I tried to start httpfs and got all of the same errors... So I may have to undo that now.

I'm hoping that I'm just missing something simple.

Any help is much appreciated

I think you have set HADOOP_HOME:-/usr/hdp/current/hadoop

It should be HADOOP_HOME:-/usr/hdp/current/hadoop-client

linexec is under hadoop-client folder.
