Subject Re: how to set up two hdfs for two hadoops
Date Mon, 07 May 2012 03:28:25 GMT
Hi Nairan,

HDFS doesn't normally run on top of Mesos, and we generally expect people to have only one
instance of HDFS, which multiple instances of MapReduce (or other frameworks) would share.
If you want two instances of HDFS, you need to set them up manually, and configure them to
use different ports. Here are the Hadoop settings you need to change:  (contains port of NameNode)
dfs.http.address  (web UI of NameNode)

We actually do this in our EC2 scripts (,
which will launch a Mesos cluster with both a "persistent" and an "ephemeral" HDFS for you.
You might take a look at how that gets configured.
