You will do this on the edge node, that's what it's for, to interact with Hadoop through client tools.

To elaborate on the answer provided by @Artem Ervits

The edge node is typically used to install client tools, so it will make sense to install the AWS S3 CLI on the edge.

For adding new users to the cluster, you need to ensure that the new users exist in ALL nodes. The reason is that Hadoop by default takes the user/group mappings from the UNIX users by default. So for Hadoop to 'know' about the new user you've created on the edge node, that same userid should exist on all nodes.
