Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2662) Namenode should log warning message when trying to start on a unformmatted system
Date Fri, 16 Dec 2011 15:08:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2662?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13171009#comment-13171009

Uma Maheswara Rao G commented on HDFS-2662:

If you start Namenode without formatting, i believe , it should log like 'all directories
are inaccessible or does not exist' message. 
is it not coming for you after adding the workaround properties( as suggested in HADOOP-7489)
in hadoop-env.sh?
Is it exited because of other error (Unable to load realm info from
SCDynamicStore) and not ging for real format?

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2662
>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: name-node
>    Affects Versions:
>         Environment: Single-node cluster on OS X 10.7 (Lion)
>            Reporter: William McNeill
>            Priority: Minor
>              Labels: format, logging, namenode
> When you try to start the namenode for a system that does not have a formatted DFS, it
fails silently without any indication that the lack of formatting was the problem. I tried
to run start-dfs.sh on a single-node cluster with an unformatted HDFS. The namenode failed
to start, but generated no warning messages, and its log was empty. After running "hadoop
namenode -format" everything worked.

> This is a difficult problem to diagnose because the namenode gives you no feedback. It
would be better if it printed an error message to its log file.
