Step 1) Make sure that your data set name is data and it should be present in hdfs.

hdfs dfs -put /home/edureka/Desktop/data /

Note: Here I have assumed that my data was on Desktop of local machine and from there I have transferred to hdfs.

Step 2)

Note: Please do not copy, paste the commands. Please try them by typing manually.

Firstly, stop oozie if it’s running.

Command: cd /usr/lib/oozie-4.0.0/

Command: ./bin/

Now you need to transfer the WordCountTest directory on hdfs ( / ).

Command: hadoop dfs -put Desktop/LMS/Oozie/WordCountTest /

Giving permissions to Oozie directory.

Command: sudo chmod -R 777 /usr/lib/oozie-4.0.0

Command: sudo chown -R edureka /usr/lib/oozie-4.0.0

Now change the directory to Oozie and start it.

Command: cd /usr/lib/oozie-4.0.0/

Command: ./bin/

Step 3)

Run the oozie command.

Command: oozie job -oozie http://localhost:11000/oozie -config /home/edureka/Desktop/LMS/Oozie/WordCountTest/ -run
