Subject Re: Running Hadoop on cluster with NFS booted systems
Date Thu, 24 Sep 2009 13:03:31 GMT
Hey Nick,

Never seen that behavior.  Couldn't imagine why it'd be an issue,  
unless there was something different between your local OS install and  

Have you tried looking into the logs?  They'd state pretty explicitly  
that the datanode isn't connecting to the namenode.

Another thing to consider -- hostname lookup and reverse-lookup ought  
to be working at the time HDFS is started; it's quite picky about  
this.  Maybe you need to add HDFS later on to the boot sequence?
