Setting up SSH keys is the way to go.  If you are looking for a good
tutorial I recommend the one on Michael Noll's site:

Subject: bin/start-all.sh tries to log into ssh and asks for password

I was following this article at
http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/GettingStartedWithHadoop word by word. I
could do everything till the section "Formatting the Namenode".

But in "Starting a Single node cluster", when I did, bin/start-all.sh,
it tries to log in to my own system using ssh and asks for password.
When I enter the password, it says JAVA_HOME not found.

How can I avoid this? One thing I could figure out is that if I supress
this password prompt by setting up ~/.ssh/authorized_keys, it can log in
and start the daemon. But is this a good solution. Any one else has
faced this problem and is there a better solution?
