> Some (sub)commands support -help or -h options for detailed help while others do not.
Ideally, all commands should support meaningful help that works regardless of current state
or configuration.
> For example, hdfs zkfc --help (or -h or -help) is not very useful. Option checking should
occur before state / configuration checking.
> {code}
> [esammer@hadoop-fed01 ~]# hdfs zkfc --help
> Exception in thread "main" org.apache.hadoop.HadoopIllegalArgumentException: HA is not
enabled for this namenode.

> {code}
> This would go a long way toward better usability for ops staff.
