I am setting up Hadoop (3 node cluster) in my college lab. I am using Ubuntu 16.04. My major problem is that the /usr/local of all the machines are mounted from same disk. So all of them have the same shared disk.
Thus I cannot start separate data nodes on slave machine as they will always be similar.
Can I install Hadoop in other directory (not in /usr/local).
Can I install Hadoop in different directory? Will it be creating a problem for me later on?
