how to install hdfs on multiple disks

Explorer

Hi

 

I have 5 computers, each with four  2TB disks, each mapped to a differnt drive.

 

I want to use cloudera manager to install Spark on my 5 machine cluster.

I want each computer to have 4*2= 8 TB hdfs storage.

 

How can I do this ? I have used cloudera manager before,  but only on machines with only 1 data drive.

What should I do now that I have 4 data drives on every machine?

 

Thank you.

Hi,

 

You can deploy path on "CM -> HDFS -> Configuration -> DataNode Data Directory" for each data disk.
