Neo4j-admin import with HDFS

(Ishaan Madan) #1

I am trying to import data into neo4j from HDFS. I was wondering if this is possible since I keep getting an error that the directory doesn't exist.

neo4j-admin import --nodes:Person "hdfs://........."

No, it has to be on the local filesystem, also because we're accessing the data with NIO.
So you either have to copy it over or mount the HDFS directory into the FS.
