Subject hdfs format command issue
Date Sat, 13 Aug 2011 15:41:59 GMT
I am trying to automate the installation/bringup of a complete hadoop/hbase cluster from a
single script. I have run into a very small issue...
Before bringing up the namenode, I have to format it with the usual "hadoop namenode -format"

Executing the above command prompts the user for Y/N?. Is there an option that can be passed
to force the format without prompting?
The aim is for the script to complete without any human intervention...
