FAQ
Can anyone please tell me how to load data onto a hadoop cluster from a non
cluster node.

I have a lot of data on one such node and also i want to keep only hdfs data
on the cluster.

Thanks

    Hi Asif,

    Just install the Hadoop package onto the external node to use it as a
    client. On that node, you set your fs.default.name parameter to point to the
    cluster, but you don't start any daemons locally, nor do you add that node
    to the slaves file.

    Then just do "hadoop fs -put localfile hdfsfile" on all your local data and
    it'll upload it to HDFS.
