  == Does the name-node stay in safe mode till all under-replicated files are fully replicated?
==
  No. During safe mode replication of blocks is prohibited.  The name-node awaits when all
or majority of data-nodes report their blocks.
  
- Depending on how safe mode parameters are configured the name-node will stay in safe mode
 until a specific percentage of blocks of the system is ''minimally'' replicated  [[http://hadoop.apache.org/core/docs/current/hadoop-default.html#dfs.replication.min|dfs.replication.min]].
If the safe mode threshold  [[http://hadoop.apache.org/core/docs/current/hadoop-default.html#dfs.safemode.threshold.pct|dfs.safemode.threshold.pct]]
 is set to 1 then all blocks of all  files should be minimally replicated.

  Minimal replication does not mean full replication. Some replicas may be missing and in
 order to replicate them the name-node needs to leave safe mode.
