BigDataLabs -- Unable to read local text file



Hello @itversity,

I am unable to read data from my local text file.

I have created one text file under my home directory and trying to read with below 2 commands but unable to read/ create RDD.
Local directory location: /home/dkothari/

commands used:

  1. first I tried below commands:
    val data ="/home/dkothari/emp.txt").getLines.toList
    val dataRDD = sc.parallelize(data)
    dataRDD.first <-- command to read data
  2. second, I tried below commands
    val data1 = sc.textFile(“file:///home/dkothari/emp.txt”)
    data1.first <-- command to read data

Below is the error message: (this is just start of error message, let me know if you need full error message)

Dear Divyakot,

Please let us know how got scala prompt.

a) spark-shell --master yarn --conf spark.ui.port=11111
b)spark-shell --conf spark.ui.port=11111

To access LFS we need open spark in local mode.

Can you please check and confirm.



Hello Raj,

I launched spark shell with below command, means in yarn mode.
spark-shell --master yarn --conf spark.ui.port=11111

Question: Do we need to do the same in cloudera cluster as well, at the time of certification?
