In web GUI, I can successfully create a new storage plugin named "myhdfs" using "file:///":
However if I try to change "file:///" to "hdfs:///" to point to HDFS other than local file system, drill log errors out "[qtp416200645-67] DEBUG o.a.d.e.server.rest.StorageResources - Unable to create/ update plugin: myhdfs".
On my cluster, I am using CDH5 hdfs, and it all client configurations are valid. For example, on the drillbit server:
Is there anything wrong with the storage plugin syntax for HDFS?
If so, can drill log prints more debug info to show the reason why it failed?
