Is it compulsory to have the hadoop user as sudo user?

0 votes

I am installing Hadoop on Ubuntu. I have a new user who has all the privileges to access the HDFS. But when I use sudo with any of the Hadoop command, I get error saying

hadoop is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.

Is it important to have sudo user for executing Hadoop commands?

No, it is not important to have a sudo user to execute Hadoop commands. You can execute all your commands from the separate user. You can execute any command for the user, just don’t add sudo before the command. It will work fine. If you face any problem, just add the privileges to the user.
