What is the command to navigate in HDFS?

0 votes

I am a new to Hadoop. So I stared by following command like hdfs dfs -ls command which I used to list the directories with the permission. Next I tried hdfs dfs -cd command to navigate to that directory. I got an error saying this command does not exist?

Can anyone tell me is there something wrong with my command or is there another command to navigate through the directories?

First of all there is no command like hdfs dfs -cd in Hadoop. In Hadoop you have to provide the whole path manually. I would recommend you to use HDFS web UI, which will ease your work. The default path of HDFS web UI is localhost:50070.
