Apache Hive is a data warehouse software project built on top of Apache Hadoop for providing data summarization, query and analysis.Hive gives an SQL-like interface to query data stored in various databases and file systems that integrate with Hadoop.

In configuring an Apache NiFi Data Flow (within Hortonworks Dataflow) I ran in to the need to configure the the PutHDFS component to connect to HDFS, this personal knowledge base article documents the the locations of the resources I needed.

Where is are my core-site.xml and hdfs-site.xml files located? What should I enter under Hadoop Config Resources?

When configuring Apache NiFi to connect to HDFS using the  PutHDFS component you will need to enter the location of your core-site.xml and hdfs-site.xml files under Hadoop config resources. Below you can see the location in my hadoop node, to find the location in your installation look under directory /etc/hadoop

The script below can help you with this:


#find the hadoop folder
cd /etc/hadoop
#run a search for the core-site.xml file, starting at the current location
find . -name core-site.xml

#in my case after examining the results from the command the file is located at:

#I then went to the directory and listed its contents to find the location of my HDFS config file:
