This post is the first in a series where I want to setup a Hadoop cluster which can than be used for development and in testing.
So with out further ado let’s start.
Installing Vagrant and Virtualbox
If you are on a mac installing both is as easy as:
Other operating system should be comparably easy.
Setting up the boxes
I’d like to use Ubuntu 16.04 (LTS) for my boxes. Searching the vagrantcloud I found: bento/ubuntu-16.04. To use it create a file called
Vagrantfile with the following content:
Vagrant.configure("2") do |config| config.vm.define :server1 do |server1| server1.vm.box = "bento/ubuntu-16.04" server1.vm.network :private_network, ip: "10.11.1.100" end config.vm.define :server2 do |server2| server2.vm.box = "bento/ubuntu-16.04" server2.vm.network :private_network, ip: "10.11.1.101" end end
Spinning up the boxes
Starting both machines is as easy as:
Both servers are now up and running. You can ssh into server1 with:
To see if server2 to is also up and running, we can ping it:
vagrant ssh server1 vagrant@vagrant:~$ ping 10.11.1.101 PING 10.11.1.101 (10.11.1.101) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from 10.11.1.101: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.562 ms 64 bytes from 10.11.1.101: icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.562 ms 64 bytes from 10.11.1.101: icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=0.537 ms 64 bytes from 10.11.1.101: icmp_seq=4 ttl=64 time=0.535 ms ...
