Apache Hadoop on Windows Azure Part 4- Remote Login to Hadoop node for MapReduce Job and HDFS administration

When you are running Apache Hadoop job in Windows Azure, you have ability to remote into the main node (It is a virtual machine) and then perform all the regular tasks i.e.:

  • Hadoop Map/Reduce Job Administration
  • HDFS management
  • Regular Name Node Management tasks


To login you just need to select the “Remote Desktop” button in your cluster management interface as below:


You will be using the same username and password, which you have selected during cluster creation. Once you are logged into your cluster main node VM, first thing you will do is to get the machine IP address. And then you just need to do open the web browser to run specific tasks along with IP address and specific administration ports.

  • For Map/Reduce job administration the port is 50030.
  • For HDFS Management the port is 50070.



For Hadoop Map/Reduce Job Administration use http://<LocalMachine_IP_Address:50030/ as below:



For Hadoop Name Node details use http://<LocalMachine_IP_Address:50070/ as below:


Above please select “Browse File System Link” to open the files in your HDFS:

  1. http://blogs.msdn.com The port 50075 50070 I have never seen this.

  2. Hello Lingoes_123,

    Most of these ports are open in your nodes within your cluster setup. When you will look into your cluster setup you will see you have 1 main node and other worker nodes which are designed to perform Hadoop job. Running net stat command in those nodes will give you mode details on this regard.
