Hi,

To give HDFS File Input as source; do I need to have Pentaho DI (Kettle) on the cluster.
Right now, I am having PDI installed on a Windows Box and is not on the hadoop cluster. Can I still access my hdfs using PDI.

Please help!

Regards
Shiv

Hi Shiv,

You do not need to have anything installed on the cluster to read or write to/from it. In fact, there is no longer a manual installation procedure for interacting with a Hadoop cluster for any features, including Pentaho MapReduce.
