Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1845) Datanodes get error message "is valid, and cannot be written to"

Raghu Angadi commented on HADOOP-1845:

This is from Datanode log. As far as datanode is concerned, it is an error. Agreed, it is
confusing to the user. We should fix this issue.

> The message shows that the namenode schedules to replicate a block to a datanode that
already holds the block. The namenode block placement algorithm makes sure that it does not
schedule a block to a datanode that is confirmed to hold a replica of the block. But it is
not aware of any in-transit  block placements (i.e. the scheduled but not confirmed block
placements), so occasionally we may still see "is valid, and cannot be written to" errors.
> A fix to the problem is to keep track of all in-transit block  placements, and the block
placement algorithm considers these  to-be-confirmed replicas as well.
