HDFS Service not enabled by default in 9.0 OneFS – java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused

In OneFS 9.0 by default Services are not enabled by default, this also includes NFS, SMB, S3 and HDFS.

When attempting to use HDFS against an 9.0 cluster, the Hadoop client may see the following error on all HDFS access.

[cdh6-1-user1@centos-10 ~]$ hadoop fs -ls /

ls: Call From centos-10.foo.com/10.246.156.21 to cdh6.foo.com:8020 failed on connection exception: java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused; For more details see:  http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/ConnectionRefused


This is because the HDFS service is not enabled on HDFS and therefore connections are refused.

When looking at the cluster we see the Service is Disabled as by design.

# isi services -al | grep hdfs

Available Services:

  hdfs                 HDFS Server                              Disabled


 

But when looking at the WebUI or the CLI, this misleading as the Service appears enabled

cascade-1# isi hdfs settings view

                 Service: Yes

      Default Block Size: 128M

   Default Checksum Type: none

     Authentication Mode: simple_only

          Root Directory: /ifs/data

         WebHDFS Enabled: Yes

           Ambari Server:

         Ambari Namenode:

             ODP Version:

    Data Transfer Cipher: none

Ambari Metrics Collector:

To enable the Service and allow HDFS connectivity, enable the hdfs service directly from the CLI.

isi services hdfs enable

# isi services -al | grep hdfs

Available Services:

  hdfs                 HDFS Server                              Enabled


Now the service is Enabled, HDFS operation can occur.

[cdh6-1-user1@centos-10 ~]$ hadoop fs -ls /

As an FYI: NFS, SMB & S3 are also Disabled by default in 9.0, but the Service checkbox/status can be managed via the WebUI Service enabled box on these services.

# isi services -al | grep smb

   smb                  SMB Service                              Disabled

Enable the Service via the WebUI:

# isi services -al | grep smb

   smb                  SMB Service                              Enabled
