Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-5891) If dfs.http.address is default, SecondaryNameNode can't find NameNode
Date Fri, 22 May 2009 15:12:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5891?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12712132#action_12712132

Todd Lipcon commented on HADOOP-5891:
-------------------------------------

Steve: I agree that service location can be improved across the board. However, I don't think
it's necessarily a good idea to overload the NameNode as a service name daemon. Personally,
I'd prefer to use something like ZooKeeper here. Obviously there needs to be at least one
host that is in a "well-known" location, which could be configured by default as a "hadoop-zk"
hostname which has multiple A records pointing to all of the ZK nodes.

Anyway, I agree that we should work towards the ideal goal, but I'd like to have that discussion
in a new JIRA. This one is a very simple fix whereas that one could be pretty significant.

> http://www.cloudera.com/blog/2009/02/10/multi-host-secondarynamenode-configuration/
> if dfs.http.address is not configured, and the 2NN is a different machine from the NN,
the 2NN fails to connect.
> In SecondaryNameNode.getInfoServer, the 2NN should notice a "0.0.0.0" dfs.http.address
and, in that case, pull the hostname out of fs.default.name. This would fix the default configuration
to work properly for most users.
