Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-1263) 0.20: in tryUpdateBlock, the meta file is renamed away before genstamp validation is done

----------------------------------------

after reading through the description, it appears to me that this bug is similar to the one
described in HDFS-1260. Shall we close this one as a duplicate?

> Saw an issue where multiple datanodes are trying to recover at the same time, and all
of them failed. I think the issue is in FSDataset.tryUpdateBlock, we do the rename of blk_B_OldGS
to blk_B_OldGS_tmpNewGS and *then* check that the generation stamp is moving upwards. Because
of this, invalid update block calls are blocked, but they then cause future updateBlock calls
to fail with "Meta file not found" errors.
