Not able to copy files to /public folder



Since last sunday I am not able to put/copyFromLocal file to hdfs.
I have sent multiple mails to support but no response yet.

[umeshsawant@gw02 ~]$ hdfs dfs -copyFromLocal /public/retail_db/
copyFromLocal: `/public/retail_db/’: No such file or directory



There is no directory named public. please check once and let us know.

Use below command to copy files to hdfs:
hadoop fs -copyFromLocal filename /user/username/
