as a matter of fact, it seems that I cannot use the command line for any Hadoop related commands...
I have an HDP 2.5 sandbox and I cannot login as hdfs user.
I connect through ssh at 192.168.163.134 (as per my VM display), port 22 when I type:
I get :
su: user hdfs does not exist
I tried also port 2222 , but I get access denied when I try to login as root/hadoop
I also tried to use the built-in web client (http://192.168.163.134:4200) but I receive : 192.168.163.134 refused to connect.
If you are able to get in the cluster using root
try this command:
If it gives the output similar to hdfs : hadoop hdfs try
sudo su hdfs
Also it should be on port 2222, do you remember reseting the pw for root when you logged in first time?
in my case, it is 192.168.163.134 port 2222
It works, but after I had to download and install again the sandbox
