Subject Re: Why in safemode namespace state should not be modified?
Date Fri, 26 Sep 2008 01:25:59 GMT
To be precise, when u start your namenode it would construct it's namespace. As datanodes startup
and send block reports the namespace gets constructed. During this time namenode is in safemode.
If your namenode is insafe mode for long time that means some datanodes are yet to report
their state.

The name node safe mode means that the name node is not changing the

file system. Meta data is read-only, and block replication / removal
is not taking place.

Hi folks,
I am wondering why it is not allowed to modify namespace info in safemode.
Especially rename, mkdir, and severals seems okay to be executed in

I appreciate your help in advance.
