> In an HA setup, the standby NN may receive messages from DNs for blocks which the standby
NN is not yet aware of. It queues up these messages and replays them when it next reads from
the edit log or fails over. On a failover, all of these pending DN messages must be processed
successfully in order for the failover to succeed. If one of these pending DN messages refers
to a DN storageId that no longer exists (because the DN with that transfer address has been
reformatted and has re-registered with the same transfer address) then on transition to active
the NN will not be able to process this DN message and will suicide with an error like the
