This is a simple tutorial which will show you how to setup hadoop with 2 servers clustered together and an instance of HBase running that uses the cluster.
This is something I wanted to do but it took me a long time to figure it out. I looked around for tutorials specific to this but could only find really long complicated tutorials which weren't exactly related to what I was trying to do.
This is going to be a real quick tutorial just showing you how I setup the different instances through their configuration files. It assumes that you already have played with hadoop and hbase and have at least setup your servers so that they can ssh to each other without password prompts, which is required for hadoop setup.
