Hey Pavel,

The "admin" / superuser for hadoop is the username who launched the daemons.

So, if you do "ps faux | grep hadoop", you should see some Java processes; the first column
of the output tells you what user they are running as.  That user is the super user.

Since you are already trying this as user "hadoop", I'm guessing that you need to run the
command as root.
