Normally your conf should reside in /etc/hadoop/conf (if you don't have one. Copy it from the namenode - and keep it sync)
hadoop (script) by default depends on hadoop-setup.sh which depends on hadoop-env.sh in /etc/hadoop/conf
Or during runtime specify the config dir
[hdfs]$ hadoop [--config <path to your config dir>] <commands>
P.S. Some useful links:

It's likely that your hadoop command isn't finding the right configuration.
In particular it doesn't know where your namenode is (fs.default.namesetting in core-site.xml)
Maybe you need to set the HADOOP_CONF_DIR environment variable to point to your conf directory.
