./bin/initdb hdfs://localhost:9000/tmp it show Error message Catalog basepath hdfs://localhost:9000/tmp does not exist .but i can able to browse that path on hdfs


Hi @vikash

OmniSci is expecting a Linux filesystem as a backend storage for the database. You need a software layer that translates the CRUD operations from a Linux filesystem to HDFS so you cannot use the HDFS path directly.
