Thanks Sujeet.. will try it out.

Hi Sun,

Can you please tell me what did you mean by "Maybe you can try using the existing random forest model" ? did you mean creating the model again using Spark MLLIB?

Try to invoke a R script from Spark using rdd pipe method , get the work done & and receive the model back in RDD. 

for ex :-
.   rdd.pipe("<FileName.R>")

Unfortunately no. Spark does not support loading external modes (for examples, PMML) for now.
Maybe you can try using the existing random forest model in Spark.

I have an existing random forest model created using R. I want to use that to predict values on Spark. Is it possible to do the same? If yes, then how?

Thanks & Regards,
