PWD command is used for show local directory i.e., /home/ec2-user/
You are created folder under hdfs i.e., -hadoop fs -mkdir /home/ec2-user/hdfs_input
One thing about aws hdfs: you are only allowed to create file under /user/ec2-user/
Please create folder as - hadoop fs -mkdir /user/ec2-user/hdfs_input
To check the created directory is available in hdfs or not:
- hadoop fs -ls /user/ec2-user/hdfs_input
We read your question correctly and this is the same answer with more explanation.
Hope this helps.
