Rclone didn’t find backend called hdfs

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I am not able to list directories from hdfs

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

rclone v1.53.3-DEV

- os/arch: linux/amd64

- go version: go1.15.9

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)


The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone --config=/tmp/rclone.conf ls -vv remote:path-to-dir

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = hdfs
namenode = namenode:port
username = service-account-name
service_principal_name = principal-name

A log from the command with the -vv flag

2022/10/13 21:27:04 Failed to create file system for "remote:path-to-dir": didn't find backend called "hdfs"

hello and welcome to the forum,

hdfs was added as of v1.54.0

so please update to latest stable v1.59.2 and test again.
