I have already installed Hadoop and already added user as hduser to group, but I have forgotten the password of the user i.e. hduser. When running su hduser from the terminal I get the result:

su: Authentication failure

How can I reset the the user password in Hadoop?


sudo passwd hduser will let you change the password for this user
