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: /etc/hadoop/126.96.36.199-292/0/core-site.xml #I then went to the directory and listed its contents to find the location of my HDFS config file: /etc/hadoop/188.8.131.52-292/0/hdfs-site.xml
