We have some Hadoop streaming jobs written in Python that I want to move to HDInsight on Windows Azure.
Whilst Python seems to be installed on the head node, it doesn't seem to be available on the other nodes(?)
When I try to install Python via a map job with a batch file
I get a 1601 error code, which I believe is Windows Installer not available.
What's the story with Python on HDInsight please? Has anybody found a way to get this to work? Any advice or guidelines would be gratefully received.
What about creating exe files from Python? It's not ideal, but then you don't have to worry about any additional modules. You may use Py2exe for this.
In any case I would be interested to see what solution you came up with.
