hi Vijaykanth,

"-R" switch should be used along with the directory, something like

hadoop fs -setrep -w 4 -R /hadoop/dir

when setting replication with file you should not use "-R" as give below

hadoop fs -setrep -w 2 wc_input/wordcount_sample
Replication 2 set: wc_input/wordcount_sample
Waiting for wc_input/wordcount_sample ........done
