On Oracle Big Appliance 4.0 Release HDFS Can be Accessed Only on Infiniband IP Address

(Doc ID 1943866.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 11, 2016

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 4.0 and later
Linux x86-64


In BDA 4.0 release, 'Bind NameNode to Wildcard Address' parameter is not enabled on a secure cluster and thus HDFS can only be accessed thru Infiniband IP address and not Ethernet IP. For this reason NameNode cannot be accessed from a Edge Node or Client server which is not part of the BDA Cluster.

$ hdfs dfs -ls /
