Yes, I'm able to create or modify storage configs with local filesystems
and use them successfully. The problem is that I cannot create/update 
a storage config to use an hdfs location (and yes, that 
hdfs location does work correctly, both directly and in other 
hadoop based applications). 

This behavior is exhibited with the example config from the doc too, viz.:
  "type": "file",
  "enabled": true,
  "connection": "hdfs:///",
    "workspaces": {
    "root": {
      "location": "/",
      "writable": false,
      "storageformat": null

This works fine with "connection": "file:///", but the following error is 
generated with the  "connection": "hdfs:///"

o.a.d.e.server.rest.StorageResources - Unable to create/ update plugin: zfs

Are any other settings required to enable HDFS access in Drill?
