Accessing Dataconnector in conductor using python from GPU server

Hello Team,

we have setup a connector in GPU to access HDFS from our CPU cluster. However, i am able to access the file in HDFS using spark but not using python. I would like to understand how to access HDFS using python commands.

Connector Name: CMOR2-HDFS
df ='/Manjunath/text.csv')
using above comman I am able to access HDFS but i need to access it using python code.

CASE Update by IBM:
I have reached IBM engineering team and got confirmation that we have added special code within Conductor Spark to support data connector. If Spark is not used, this part of functionality will be missing for data connector. Therefore, in pure python, you shall not be able to get data connector features. If you do need this, we suggest you log RFE for IBM engineering team to evaluate the possibility to implement it. Thanks.
