Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4210) NameNode Format should not fail for DNS resolution on minority of JournalNode
Date Mon, 19 Nov 2012 18:27:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4210?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13500464#comment-13500464
] 

Todd Lipcon commented on HDFS-4210:
-----------------------------------

Currently we dont have any way to format a minority of nodes in the quorum. So, if we allowed
you to format with missing nodes, then there'd be no easy way to format the new node when
you add it (aside from rsync). Given that, we made the decision (for now) to only succeed
formatting if all of the nodes are up.

What's the use case where you want to start running with only 2 nodes up? It wouldn't provide
any redundancy over just having 1 node.
