Re: Run multiple HDFS instances
Yes you can but if you want the scripts to work, you should have them
use a different PID directory (I think its called HADOOP_PID_DIR)
every time you invoke them.

I instead prefer to start the daemons up via their direct command such
as "hdfs namenode" and so and move them to the background, with a
redirect for logging.
