If you are starting from scratch with no prior Hadoop install experience I would configure
stand-alone, migrate to pseudo distributed and then to fully distributed verifying functionality
at each step by doing a simple word count run. Also, if you don't mind using the CDH distribution
then SCM / their rpms will greatly simplify both the bin installs as well as the user creation.

Your VM route will most likely work but I can imagine the amount of hiccups during migration
from that to the real cluster will not make it worth your time.

Subject: Environment consideration for a research on scheduling

in the first phase we are planning to establish a small cluster with few
commodity computer (each 1GB, 200GB,..). Cluster would run ubuntu server
10.10 and  a hadoop build from the branch 0.20.204 (i had some issues with
version 0.20.203 with missing
Would you suggest any other version?

In the second phase we are planning to analyse, test and modify some of
hadoop schedulers.

Now I am interested what is the best way to deploy ubuntu and hadop to this
few machine. I was thinking to configure the system in the local VM and then
converting it to each physical machine but probably this is not the best
option. If you know any other please share..

Thanks you!
