Setting up Hadoop to run on Single Node in Ubuntu 15.04

This is tested on hadoop-2.7.3.

Improvement on Hadoop documentation : http://hadoop.apache.org/docs/r2.7.2/hadoop-project-dist/hadoop-common/SingleCluster.html

Step 1 

Make sure Java is installed

Installation instruction : http://suhothayan.blogspot.com/2010/02/how-to-set-javahome-in-ubuntu.html

Step 2

Install pre-requisites

$ sudo apt-get install ssh
$ sudo apt-get install rsync

Step 3

Setup Hadoop

$ gedit hadoop-2.7.3/etc/hadoop/core-site.xml

Add (replace {user-name} with system username, E.g "foo" for /home/foo/)


$ gedit hadoop-2.7.3/etc/hadoop/hdfs-site.xml 



Step 4


$ ssh localhost 

If it requested for password, run:

$ ssh-keygen -t dsa -P '' -f ~/.ssh/id_dsa
$ cat ~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
$ chmod 0600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

Try ssh localhost again.
If it still asks for password, run following and try again:

$ ssh-keygen -t rsa
#Press enter for each line
$ cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
$ chmod og-wx ~/.ssh/authorized_keys 

Step 5

Clean namenode

$ ./hadoop-2.7.3/bin/hdfs namenode -format

Step 6 * Not provided in Hadoop Documentation 

Replace ${JAVA_HOME} with hardcoded path in hadoop-env.sh

gedit hadoop-2.7.3/etc/hadoop/hadoop-env.sh

Edit the file as 

# The java implementation to use.
export JAVA_HOME={path}/jdk1.8.0_111

Step 7

Start Hadoop 

$ ./hadoop-2.7.3/sbin/start-all.sh

The Hadoop daemon log output is written to the $HADOOP_LOG_DIR directory (defaults to $HADOOP_HOME/logs).

Browse the web interface for the NameNode;


Step 8

Check processors running by running:

$ jps


xxxxx NameNode
xxxxx ResourceManager
xxxxx DataNode
xxxxx NodeManager
xxxxx SecondaryNameNode

Step 9

Make HDFS directories for MapReduce jobs:

$ ./hadoop-2.7.3/bin/hdfs dfs -mkdir /user
$ ./hadoop-2.7.3/bin/hdfs dfs -mkdir /user/{user-name}

  7. I would suggest to take training from someone who is working in real time. Let me tell my story, I was working as a software engineer for a company. After 5 years it was very hard for me to move to other company as I my knowledge is very less. So I thought to change my platform to get new skills and new package in future. After continuous research I decided to take Hadoop training. So I googled on internet for best institute to learn Hadoop, shortlisted SV Soft Solutions institute and attended demo session, impressed to the trainer demo and joined. The course duration was 3 months. The trainer has great knowledge and he explained real time scenarios and taught real time project. I was able to clear my interview with great package. And finally moved to new company.
