Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-3731) 2.0 release upgrade must handle blocks being written from 1.0

Eli Collins commented on HDFS-3731:
-----------------------------------

Great +1.  The code/design makes sense to me and we know the current path is broken and we've
verified the fix.  Suresh and Nicholas I'll commit this unless you're going to check it out.

> Release 2.0 upgrades must handle blocks being written to (bbw) files from 1.0 release.
Problem reported by Brahma Reddy.
> The {{DataNode}} will only have one block pool after upgrading from a 1.x release.  (This
is because in the 1.x releases, there were no block pools-- or equivalently, everything was
in the same block pool).  During the upgrade, we should hardlink the block files from the
{{blocksBeingWritten}} directory into the {{rbw}} directory of this block pool.  Similarly,
on {{-finalize}}, we should delete the {{blocksBeingWritten}} directory.
