(Doc ID 2018906.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 11, 2016

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 4.1.0 and later
Linux x86-64


On Oracle Big Data Appliance (BDA), when Active Namenode(NN) resides on BDA node02 then hdfs commands from Client fail with below error.

java.net.ConnectException: Call From to :8020
 failed on connection exception: java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused;

Further investigation shows NN on node02 can only be accessed using Infiniband IP and not Ethernet IP.
