Warning: fs.defaultFS is not set

Explorer

Hello,

 

I have a 8 node cloudera cluster with three master nodes  contains master deamons up and running and three slave nodes contains all slave deamons up and running and two edge nodes to access hadoop services. Hue is installed on both of the edge nodes. It is managed from cloudera manager. 

 

I have deployed client configuraion across all nodes. Environement variable is set correctly. Checked hadoop configuration in my edgenodes. But unable to access hadoop services by hdfs fs shell command. Endpoints are configured properly and hue works fine. I can run all hdfs fs shell commands in my master and slave nodes. It is a very basic question. I have checked the possible corners in the server. But I cant locate the problem. Could you please help me get rid of the issue. 

 

sudo -u hdfs hadoop fs -ls /

Hey rkkrishnaa, 

 

Has the edge node been assigned a the "HDFS Gateway" role? You can confirm this by clicking on "Hosts" and expanding the roles. 

 

Cheers

Brother

Just go to HDFS --> Instances --> (Then click on) Add role instances --> & just select & configure "Gateway" on a host.

 

Your problem will be resolved... in-sha-ALLAH.Screenshot (77).png

This can be a case to case incident. In some cases we need to remove and replace the content of the /opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH/lib/hadoop/etc/hadoop directory from the other nodes of the same cluster if this node is added from some other cluster. This is because the directory may not be cleared before adding the server to the new cluster. The existing files form the old cluster may not work as expected in the new cluster as the parameters in the configuration files may vary from cluster to cluster. So we need to forcefully remove the contents and add them manually.
