Installing Hadoop 2.x on MAC (Yosemite)

After breaking my head on several videos and blogs i finally got it right.
To install hadoop 2.x on mac i would recommend you have
a) Java Installed (If java is not installed install JAVA JDK)
b) Password-less ssh
(Check by typing down below)

ssh localhost

If password-less ssh is not enabled
Ensure Remote Login under System Preferences -> Sharing is checked to enable SSH.

ssh-keygen -t rsa -P ""

cat $HOME/.ssh/ >> $HOME/.ssh/authorized_keys

ssh localhost

(Make sure you are able to ssh password less and while generating keys make sure its blank)
(For this tutorial we will configure Hadoop in psedu0-distributed mode --

Download Hadoop
Extract Hadoop

tar -xvzf ~/Downloads/hadoop-2.7.0.tar.gz

And edit the following in the configuration files

And VoilĂ  you have a petit Hadoop cluster for yourself.

  1. Thanks always for posting reliable information and well researched topics on the hadoop subject which otherwise can be learned either at regular or only at hadoop online training centers.
