Re: Adding external jar
I am not sure if my classpath is set up right. See:

*[hadoop@node]$ cat /opt/hadoop/conf/hadoop-env.sh | grep HADOOP_CLASSPATH*
export HADOOP_CLASSPATH=./:/conf:/build/*:

and the specific command I was trying to run was actually running a
mapreduce job on accumulo and was providing some accumulo libraries in the

*[hadoop@node]$ /opt/hadoop/bin/hadoop jar *
org.apache.accumulo.examples.simple.mapreduce.bulk.BulkIngestExample *
*-libjars *

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:

But org/apache/accumulo/core/client/Instance exists in
*any clue whats going wrong here?
