This is what I want to do :
I want to learn about hadoop and run some hands on distributed computing by some programming
I have a windows box with window 7 professional installed in it, I also have a VMware Workstation 7 with Ubuntu 10.04.1 installed on it
I want to know if following is possible and how: - install multiple ubuntu vitrual machines on same workstation( this could be easily done ) - installed hadoop on these multiple installed virtual machines and treat the architecture as multiple nodes?
Please let me know how to do this(is possible) and test it
Thank you very much
I followed this blog and get it done :) http://www.michael-noll.com/wiki/Running_Hadoop_On_Ubuntu_Linux_(Single-Node_Cluster)
