Subject Re: how to get out of Safe Mode?
Date Wed, 05 Aug 2009 08:04:35 GMT
Two alternatives:

1. Do bin/hadoop namenode -format. That'll format the metadata and you can
start afresh.

2. If that doesnt work, manually go and delete everything that resides in
the directories to which you've pointed your Namenode and Datanodes to store
their stuff in.
