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
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??
