Subject Re: Hadoop 2.2.0 from source configuration
Date Tue, 03 Dec 2013 17:53:24 GMT
Daniel,

It looks that you can only communicate with NameNode to do "metadata-only"
operations (e.g. listing, creating a dir, empty file)...

Did you format the NameNode correctly?
A quite similar issue is described here:
http://www.manning-sandbox.com/thread.jspa?messageID=126741. The last reply
says: "The most common is that you have reformatted the namenode leaving it
in an inconsistent state. The most common solution is to stop dfs, remove
the contents of the dfs directories on all the machines, run “hadoop
namenode -format” on the controller, then restart dfs. That consistently
fixes the problem for me. This may be serious overkill but it works."
