Subject Re: Name Node HA ERROR
Date Thu, 18 Dec 2014 09:37:48 GMT

It seems both namenodes was active for a period or the standby node 
process was stopped for long time.
Tip: on the standby node try to backup the fsimage and bootstrap that 
node again. Be careful because if you do a namenode format again you 
will lost your datas on the hdfs.

"If you have already formatted the NameNode, or are converting a 
non-HA-enabled cluster to be HA-enabled, you should now copy over the 
contents of your NameNode metadata directories to the other, unformatted 
NameNode by running the command "/hdfs namenode -bootstrapStandby/" on 
the unformatted NameNode. Running this command will also ensure that the 
JournalNodes (as configured by *dfs.namenode.shared.edits.dir*) contain 
sufficient edits transactions to be able to start both NameNodes."

Anyway here is a link about other namenode recovery possibilities:
