Subject [jira] Created: (HDFS-762) Trying to start the balancer throws a NPE

Trying to start the balancer throws a NPE

                 Key: HDFS-762
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-762
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 0.21.0
            Reporter: Cristian Ivascu

When trying to run the balancer, I get a NullPointerException:

2009-11-10 11:08:14,235 ERROR org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.balancer.Balancer: java.lang.NullPointerException
        at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.namenode.BlockPlacementPolicy.getInstance(BlockPlacementPolicy.java:161)
        at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.balancer.Balancer.checkReplicationPolicyCompatibility(Balancer.java:784)
        at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.balancer.Balancer.<init>(Balancer.java:792)
        at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.balancer.Balancer.main(Balancer.java:814)

This happens when trying to use bin/start-balancer or bin/hdfs balancer -threshold 10

The config files (hdfs-site and core-site) have as fs.default.name hdfs://namenode:9000.
