Subject Re: MapReduce jobs remotely

I believe I have fixed it.

I am using pig-0.9.2. My cluster is using CDH4b2, but I am not using the
Pig RPM install on the client. I downloaded the tarball from Apache.

Each machine in my cluster has $HADOOP_MAPRED_HOME defined.

I cleaned up my Pig configuration directory to only have the following jars:


I installed pig on one of the cluster machines just to get and copy the pig
cdh4b2 libraries. This combination of libraries made Pig connect to the
YARN architecture. Prior to this combination I basically included every
library Hadoop and HBase offered, which was overkill and the
hadoop-mapreduce-*.jar files are what made Pig with LocalJobRunner. After
this the job kept failing and digging through HDFS for the log files, it
was revealed that MRv2 couldn't find TableOutputFormat. To get
TableOutputFormat to work with MapReduce jobs I needed to put update
yarn-site.xml to include HBase dependencies:

    Classpath for typical applications.

Maybe this will be helpful to someone else.
