Sahara: Change Java heap space

Hi everybody,

I have created a cluster hadoop (When create Node group template, I have modified mapred.child.java.opts: "-Xmx200m" to "-Xmx1024m"). Then i ssh to master-instance and run: "hadoop jar hadoop-examples-1.2.1.jar pi 10 100", I get the error:

java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space

Check file /etc/hadoop/hadoop-env.sh. I see:

Default: export HADOOP_CLIENT_OPTS="-Xmx128m $HADOOP_CLIENT_OPTS"

Then, I edit 128 to 1024:

export HADOOP_CLIENT_OPTS="-Xmx1024m $HADOOP_CLIENT_OPTS"

When run "hadoop jar hadoop-examples-1.2.1.jar pi 10 100", it's worked! But, my cluster still in a state: "Watting" and ip_master:50030/jobtracker.jps not running?

Why HADOOP_CLIENT_OPTS in /etc/hadoop/hadoop-env.sh not automatic update when create cluster?

What is the problem here? Thank you very much!
