The best way to learn about Hadoop is getting your hands dirty with real Hadoop programs and their execution. In order to do so we first need a Hadoop installation in local development box.

Steps to install Hadoop:

1. Download and install the Oracle Virtual Box

2. Download and install Hortonworks Sandbox virtual appliance for VirtualBox

*Tip: If you get any error running Oracle Virtual Box, please check the BIOS settings to enable virtualization on the machine. And ensure you downloaded the correct installation matching your system configuration (32 bit vs 64 bit).

You can access you Hadoop installation using the browser based interface (Hue) at http://localhost:8888/

You can also SSH to the linux virtual box using credentials root/hadoop.

You can SFTP to the linux box using ip and port 2222.

Login into the SSH terminal and run command: hadoop version

This will print the version information of Hadoop installation.


[root@sandbox ~]# hadoop version
