Because the permission of the root user is too large for daily use, add a user for daily use or for others to use. 1) Create a new user: adduser hadoop 2) Change the password of the new user: passwd hadoop 2. Authorize the newly created user to use the sudo command. Chmod -v u+w /etc/sudoers chmod -v u+w /etc/sudoers chmod -v u+w /etc/sudoers Hadoop ALL=(ALL) ALL Hadoop ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL 3) Revoke sudoers' write permission chmod -v u-w /etc/sudoers
