Subject RE: missing VERSION files leading to failed datanodes
Date Tue, 08 Jan 2008 18:06:05 GMT
Hi Joydeep,

Which version of hadoop are you running? We had earlier fixed a bug
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2073
in version 0.15.

Thanks,
dhruba

well - at least i know why this happened. (still looking for a way to
restore the version file).

https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2549 is causing disk full
on one of the disks (in spite of du.reserved setting). looks like while
starting up - the VERSION file could not be written and went missing.
that would seem like another bug (writing a tmp file and renaming it to
VERSION file would have prevented this mishap):

2008-01-08 08:36:20,045 ERROR org.apache.hadoop.dfs.DataNode:
org.apache.hadoop.dfs.InconsistentFSStateException: Directory
/var/hadoop/tmp/dfs/data is in an inconsistent state: file VERSION is
invalid.

[root@hadoop034.sf2p data]# ssh hadoop003.sf2p cat
/var/hadoop/tmp/dfs/data/current/VERSION 
[root@hadoop034.sf2p data]# 

any idea why the VERSION file is empty? and how can i regenerate it - or
ask the system to generate a new one without discarding all the blocks?


i had previously shutdown and started dfs once (to debug a different bug
where it's not honoring du.reserved. more on that later).

help appreciated,

Joydeep
