Step 2: Extract and Move

Extract the tar file and move it into the installation directory.

First, open the terminal and login through hadoop user. (On this system, hadoop user is “hduser”).

    $ su - hduser

Go to the Download directory. Here, in the below command, put your root user name at the place of user. (On this system, root user is gopal.)

    $ cd /home/user/Downloads/

To see whether your file is downloaded or not, run ls command. You will get the downloaded zookeeper file in this directory.

**Extract the File:**

    $ sudo tar -zxvf zookeeper-3.4.9.tar.gz 

Move the extracted file into the installation directory:

    $ sudo mv zookeeper-3.4.9 /usr/local/zookeeper
    $ sudo chown hduser:hadoop /usr/local/zookeeper/

Step 3: Create configuration file

Open the configuration file named conf/zoo.cfg

    $ cd /usr/local/zookeeper/conf/
    $ sudo cp zoo_sample.cfg zoo.cfg
    $ sudo nano zoo.cfg

Edit the file zoo.cfg. Your file should have the following field given below:

    # The number of milliseconds of each tick
    # The number of ticks that the initial
    # synchronization phase can take
    # The number of ticks that can pass between
    # sending a request and getting an acknowledgement
    # the directory where the snapshot is stored.
    # do not use /tmp for storage, /tmp here is just
    # example sakes.
    # the port at which the clients will connect
    # the maximum number of client connections.
    # increase this if you need to handle more clients
    # Be sure to read the maintenance section of the
    # administrator guide before turning on autopurge.
    # http://zookeeper.apache.org/doc/current/zookeeperAdmin.html#sc_maintenance
    # The number of snapshots to retain in dataDir
    # Purge task interval in hours
    # Set to "0" to disable auto purge feature

Use Ctrl+X and Y to save.

    $ sudo ./zkServer.sh start

You will get the output like this:

    ZooKeeper JMX enabled by default
    Using config: /usr/local/zookeeper/bin/../conf/zoo.cfg
    Starting zookeeper ... STARTED

To connect to Zookeeper server using Java, use following command:

    $ ./zkCli.sh -server
