Hadoop Installation Directory

Hadoop Installation Directory

Hello, Assume i have a given system where hadoop is installed.

And if someone ask me to give the directory path where hadoop is installed , how to get this ?

Also in my VM installation i could not see even HADOOP_HOME environment variable.

Can we give any name to our hadoop home environment variable ???

One example:

[root@sandbox ~]# find / -name hadoop
/usr/bin/hadoop
[..]


[root@sandbox ~]# ls -lrt /usr/bin/hadoop
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 41 2015-10-27 12:29 /usr/bin/hadoop -> /usr/hdp/current/hadoop-client/bin/hadoop

Here /usr/hdp/current/hadoop-client/bin/ will be your Hadoop home

HADOOP_HOME is not a global variable, it is used by Hadoop daemons from hadoop env file.

Hadoop or HDP will be installed under /usr/hdp/version and symlink /usr/hdp/current

[root@phdns01 hdp]# ls -l
