Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3448) Add some more hints of the problem when datanode and namenode don't match
Date Tue, 27 May 2008 16:30:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3448?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12600182#action_12600182
] 

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-3448:
----------------------------------------

The patch I've submitted adds the version information, so the the stack trace can be more
useful than :

java.lang.AssertionError: Data-node and name-node layout versions must be the same.,

However, one thing to consider is whether this should be checked every time the datanode starts
up, rather than skipping it if -ea is disabled. Otherwise there is a risk that the problem
will not be picked up in production.

> When there is a mismatch between name and data mode, and you are running with -ea set,
then Datanode.handshake() bails out with an assertion  "Data-node and name-node layout versions
must be the same.";
> However, this message doesnt actually say which version numbers are at fault. A better
error message would include the version information, so pointing the finger of blame would
be easier.
