Format the namenode

Next step is to format the Namenode to create a Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS).

  1. Open a new Cygwin window.
  2. Execute the following commands:
    cd hadoop-0.19.1
    mkdir logs
    bin/hadoop namenode -format

    Format the namenode
  3. The last command will run for some time and produce output similar to that shown below:

    Hadoop Distributed File System created.

    Now that the filesystem has been created you can proceed to the next step.
