Subject RE: unable to use hdfs haadmin -ns <nameserviceId> on HDP2.1 , HDFS2.
Date Mon, 03 Nov 2014 07:21:58 GMT
Hi Mittra

As far as I knew, "hdfs haadmin -ns" is not availble..(please someone can correct, If I am

Please check following help command for haadmin..

[root@linux bin]# ./hdfs haadmin
No GC_PROFILE is given. Defaults to medium.
Usage: DFSHAAdmin [-ns <nameserviceId>]
    [-transitionToActive <serviceId> [--forceactive]]
    [-transitionToStandby <serviceId>]
    [-failover [--forcefence] [--forceactive] <serviceId> <serviceId>]
    [-getServiceState <serviceId>]
    [-checkHealth <serviceId>]
    [-help <command>]


if your service id's are like nn1,nn2

then you can try like,, hdfs haadmin -getServiceState nn1.

Thanks & Regards

Subject: unable to use hdfs haadmin -ns <nameserviceId> on HDP2.1 , HDFS2.

hi All,
I wanted to systematically probe and list all my namenode(s) via CLI.
An easier way was to maintain a masters conf file , but I want to
dynamically find the same leveraging the system metadata.

In process of trying to find the same , I tried to use
hdfs haadmin -ns ... but to my dismay the command always returns "Missing
Command" on the console as if I am doing something syntactically wrong.

I know my nameserviceId and I tried both capital letters and all small
(just to be sure to not commit a silly mistake).

Can you please help me in trying to figure out what I am doing wrong here.
