Using Flux Hadoop requires a Flux user account but does not require an active Flux allocation. Information on getting a Flux account can be found on the Flux User Guide page. You only need to pay attention to steps 1, 2, and 4 in order to use Flux-Hadoop. Please note that in step 4 rather than logging into flux-login.arc-ts.umich.edu, you need to log into flux-hadoop-login.arc-ts.umich.edu. This video will help teach you some basic Linux navigation commands if needed.
