formatting hdfs says could not create jvm
Hi i am following this tutorial for installing hadoop alpha 2.0.2 on ubuntu
12.10 and am sure home variables for java and hadoop are properly
configured.

http://jugnu-life.blogspot.in/2012/05/hadoop-20-install-tutorial-023x.html?showComment=1355499712017#c4821381562859079532

after all the setup when i try to format hdfs it says something like this..

hduser@impala:/usr/local/hadoop$ hdfs -format

i get this error any reason why ..

Unrecognized option: -format
Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.

does anyone have any idea about it??
