Step 3: Set up an HDFS directory for Hunk access

This step shows you how to create a new HDFS directory that gives the root user access. This is needed for this specific example because we will install Splunk as root, and Splunk must have permissions for an HDFS directory.

(If you have already set up Splunk as one of the users that already has HDFS permissions, you do not need to complete this step.)

su - hdfs -c "hadoop fs -mkdir hdfs://localhost:8020/user/root"
su - hdfs -c "hadoop fs -chown root:root hdfs://localhost:8020/user/root"
hadoop fs -mkdir hdfs://localhost:8020/user/root/splunkmr

If you want to see the new directory and permissions, you can use the following command:

hadoop fs -ls -R hdfs://localhost:8020/user/root
