If I understand correctly, Hadoop or BigData applicatins are highly I/O bound. So for performance processing you would definitely prefer many little physical machines. Apart from that setting up Hadoop on VMWare should bring no questions that would not occur on physical installations.

Depending on your performance needs and your three virtual machines you would probably go with a dedicated master and two slave nodes. The master should be running NameNode and ResourceManager, the slaves DataNode and NodeManager. Other nodes in the Hadoop setup are optional.

In my cluster ,I want to have multiusers for different purpose. The usual method is to add a user through the OS on Hadoop NameNode.

I notice the hadoop also support to LDAP, could I add user through LDAP instead through OS? So that if a user is authenticated by the LDAP ,who will also access the HDFS directory?

I am running VMware player on CentOS 5.4 and its working fine. However it does not allow me to increase the RAM more than 3GB. It keeps throwing error stating- "Requested memory size is greater than allowed maximum of 3072 MB. Could not initiate memory hot plug."

I understand from few threads that 32bit OS has this kind of limitation but I am able to understand why I am seeing this issue when I am using 64bit OS and VMware player is also for 64bit.

Let we change the default block size to 32 MB and replication factor to 1. Let Hadoop cluster consists of 4 DNs. Let input data size is 192 MB. Now I want to place data on DNs as following. DN1 and DN2 contain 2 blocks (32+32 = 64 MB) each and DN3 and DN4 contain 1 block (32 MB) each. Can it be possible? How to accomplish it?
