Establishing a Connection
Connecting to HDFS
In order to connect, set the following connection properties:
- Host: Set this value to the host of your HDFS installation.
- Port: Set this value to the port of your HDFS installation. Default port: 50070
Authenticating to HDFS
There are two authentication methods available for connecting to the HDFS data source, the Anonymous Authentication and the and Negotiate (Kerberos) Authentication.
In some situations, HDFS may be connected to without any authentication connection properties. To do so, simply set the AuthScheme to None (default).
Authenticate using Kerberos
When authentication credentials are required, authentication over Kerberos may be used. Please see Using Kerberos for details on how to authenticate with Kerberos.
