Centralizing HDFS metadata

If you often need to use a file schema from HDFS, the Hadoop Distributed File System, then you may want to centralize the connection information to the HDFS and the schema details in the Metadata folder in the Repository tree view.


  • Launch the Hadoop distribution you need to use and ensure that you have the correct access permission to that distribution and its HDFS.

  • Create the connection to that Hadoop distribution from the Hadoop cluster node. For further information, see Centralizing a Hadoop connection.
