How to move Word and PDF documents to Hadoop HDFS

0 votes
I want to copy/upload some files from a local system onto HDFS. I have WINDOWS OS

I tried with Flume spool directory. It works fine with Text files. For other docs, the mime type is getting corrupted.

Please let me know.

Try with below commands:

hadoop fs -copyFromLocal <localsrc> URI

You can also use hadoop fs -put <localsrcpath> <hdfspath>

This is one of the alternative to copyFromLocal
