Failed to create file in HDFS

Failed to create file in HDFS

Hi,

I have setup DSS with Hadoop but having permission issues when storing dataset in HDFS.

Have used below article to setup, but I need help on steps in the HDFS section where I need to create a writable home directory in HDFS? That is my suspicion for the errors.

https://doc.dataiku.com/dss/latest/hadoop/installation.html#hdfs

You may also need to setup a writable HDFS home directory for DSS (typically “/user/dataiku”) if you plan to store DSS datasets in HDFS.

 

Error in DSS recipe build below:

Hi,

the URI in the log excerpt you pasted says `file:/user/...` which means that the Hadoop setup on the DSS instance or more generally on the machine is incomplete or incorrect. That URI implies the Hadoop property fs.defaultFS is still on its default value, which in turn implies that however Hadoop was set up, the Hadoop settings aren't available to DSS.

You need to check that you can run `hadoop` on the command line, inspect the HDFS with commands like `hadoop fs -ls`. If your Hadoop installation is a local one, that you have set up manually (read: doesn't come from a Hadoop vendor), there's a good chance that you don't have a HADOOP_CONF_DIR environment variable set; in that case, define it in the `./bin/env-site.sh` of you DSS instance, and make it point to wherever the Hadoop conf files are, and restart DSS.

Hi ismail,

In terms of making sure that the "dataiku" user has a writable home directory in HDFS, you may also want to involve your Hadoop admins. For example, you could use the "hdfs dfs" commands with the appropriate hadoop user to create the home directory for your dataiku user, something like:

hdfs dfs -mkdir /user/dataiku
hdfs dfs -chown dataiku:dataiku /user/dataiku
su - dataiku
hdfs dfs -ls

 

You can also find many examples of how to do this online, such as:

https://blog.dbi-services.com/create-an-hdfs-users-home-directory/

http://www.hadooplessons.info/2017/12/creating-home-directory-for-user-in-hdfs-hdpca.html

However, as mentioned previously, this is more of a Hadoop exercise so you may want to include your Hadoop admins accordingly if you have one. 

Best,

Andrew
