It seems root user does not have suffiecient permission to create directory in HDFS
first become hdfs user
su - hdfs
Run the following command to create /hadoop directory in HDFS File system.
hdfs dfs -mkdir /hadoop/
hdfs dfs -mkdir /hadoop/hdfs
Hi @subhash parise,
Thanks for the answer, yes I think this is the issue and I do not know the HDFS password. The system was set up before I was here, is there a way to reset it?
I have managed to access route and the 'hdfs dfs -mkdir /hadoop' and 'hdfs dfs -mkdir /hadoop/hdfs' commands seemed to go though without issue. Should I now try to move files into hdfs?
