Re: How to add users in supergroup?
Check your HDFS config file for the groupname you used as HDFS supergroup.
 We used hdfs as the group name in our case.

Then just groupadd hdfs  (see man groupadd for additional options)
Then, when you create users, add them to that group.

useradd -G hdfs newuser

This is more Linux admin than Hadoop centric.
