I'm self learning Hadoop and started of with installing Cloudera QuickStart on a VMware Workstation running CENT OS.

I was under the impression that Quickstart VM has most the of configurations predefined. Do I need to set up any other configurations to set up data and name node? Reason being when I type JFS I get only

[cloudera@quickstart bin]$ jps

9480 RunJar

18607 Jps 6952


I don't see any data nodes nor name nodes.I looked it up online and solution was to start the daemons using But I get an error

[cloudera@quickstart hadoop]$

bash: command not found
Another round of research landed me in this

As suggested in that answer, when I ran bin/hadoop namenode -format

 [cloudera@quickstart hadoop]$ bin/hadoop namenode -format

bash: bin/hadoop: No such file or directory

I'm stuck in the middle of nowhere with motivation for self study getting really low. Please help with a suggestion and raise up my spirits.

P.S.: I'm an extreme beginner on Hadoop, so please don't be harsh on me if the question looks stupid to you :)
