Hi Pierre,

As per the below information, we see Job is running in local mode and trying to use the local file system for staging dir. Could you please configure 'mapreduce.framework.name'  & 'fs.defaultFS' and check.

Subject: incorrect staging area path in 2.0.5

I recently updated from 1.0.4 to 2.0.5. Since then, streaming jobs have been failing to launch due to what seems like an incorrect staging path:

# /opt/hadoop2/bin/hadoop jar /opt/hadoop2/share/hadoop/tools/lib/hadoop-streaming-2.0.5-alpha.jar -input foo -output bar -mapper baz -reducer foobar

Streaming Command Failed!

This is for a job launched as "myuser". Given that mapreduce.jobtracker.staging.root.dir is set to /user, I would expect the staging area to be in /user/myuser/.staging/job_local$jobid. Instead, it is in /user/myuser$jobid/.staging/job_local$jobid, which fails since /user/myuser$jobid/ doesn't exist. Has the way staging.root.dir is used changed in 2.x?

Thank you,
