Subject files that don't really exist?
Date Mon, 13 Dec 2010 16:51:48 GMT
I've got a smallish cluster of 12 nodes up from 6, that we're using to dip 
our feet into hadoop.  One of my users has a few directories in his HDFS 
home which he was using to test, and which exist, according to 

hadoop fs -ls <home directory>



but if you do:

hadoop fs -ls /user/ken/testoutput5

you get:

ls: Cannot access /user/ken/testoutput5: No such file or directory.

I can even hadoop fs -mkdir /user/ken/testoutput5, and then -rmr it, and it 
works fine, but then -ls still shows it.

same for -rmr.  There's nothing important in the directories, so I'd just 
remove them, but it won't let me.  I've tried fsck'ing, no luck there.  
Anyone have an idea how I might clean this up, and how it might have 
happened in the first place?

I'm pretty sure the directories were copied over from another cluster in 
their current state, if that helps shine a light.

Any help is much appreciated.
