Thanks for your prompt response. But...
Is there a way to use Hadoop without a static IP address with a VM?

if your purpose is learn / dev / demo, it would be a good idea to use a VM. 
You will not only be able to use a static IP, but also keep copies of working systems, make
some tests, learn how to setup a cluster with only 1 physical machine. And much more.

  Hello all in this list!

  Thank you Harsh J for your help! I decided to post it again in order to properly identify
myself in the archive list.

  My name is Cristián and I am trying to learn Hadoop and to use it in near future...

  I’ve started to learn Hadoop via Infosphere BigInsights (IBI), Basic Edition, from IBM.
  But I am facing problems now that make me wonder if there are alternative ways to learn

  The biggest problem is that IBI demands a static IP address, and this is a tough requirement
for me, since I travel a lot for business and always use IP address assigned via DHCP..
  Is there a way to use Hadoop without a static IP address?

  More general question: What are the system requirements for installation of Hadoop?

  Thank you in advance!

  Cristián Carranzal.
