This section describes the installation and deployment of HDP and IBM Spectrum® Scale™ Hadoop integration that consists of the management pack and HDFS Transparency connector.

This installation section will describe how to install ESS Remote mount with all Hadoop nodes as IBM Spectrum Scale nodes as the 1st deployment model as described in the Hadoop Scale Storage Architecture.

Before starting the software deployment, follow the Planning section to setup the environment and download the software.
  • This chapter describes how to add IBM Spectrum Scale service as a root user. If you plan to restrict root access, review the Restricting root access.
  • To install the IBM Spectrum Scale service, an existing HDFS cluster is required. This can be created by installing the HDP stack with native HDFS.

For other installation scenarios, see Configuration.
