Subject datanode not being started
Date Fri, 13 Feb 2009 23:28:11 GMT

I would really appreciate any help I can get on this! I've suddenly ran into
a very strange error.

when I do:
I get:
hadoop$ bin/start-all.sh
starting namenode, logging to
starting jobtracker, logging to

No datanode, secondary namenode or jobtracker are being started.

When I try to upload anything on the dfs, I get a "node in safemode" error
(even after waiting 5 minutes), presumably because it's trying to reach a
datanode that does not exist.  The same "safemode" error occurs when I try
to run jobs.

I have tried bin/stop-all and then bin/start-all again. I get the same

This is incredibly strange, since I was previously able to start and run
jobs without any issue using this version on this machine. I am running jobs
on a single Mac Pro running OS X 10.5

I have tried updating to hadoop-0.19.0, and I get the same problem. I have
even tried this using previous versions, and I'm getting the same problem!

Anyone have any idea why this suddenly could be happening? What am I doing

For convenience, I'm including portions of both conf/hadoop-env.sh and

--- hadoop-env.sh ---
 # Set Hadoop-specific environment variables here.

# The only required environment variable is JAVA_HOME.  All others are
# optional.  When running a distributed configuration it is best to
# set JAVA_HOME in this file, so that it is correctly defined on
# remote nodes.

# The java implementation to use.  Required.

# Extra Java CLASSPATH elements.  Optional.

# The maximum amount of heap to use, in MB. Default is 1000.
 export HADOOP_HEAPSIZE=3000
