> I tried to run the following command on a Hadoop 2.6.0 cluster with HA support 
> $ hdfs dfsadmin -refreshNamenodes datanode-host:port
> to refresh name nodes on data nodes after I replaced one name node with a new one so
that I don't need to restart the data nodes. However, I got the following error:
> refreshNamenodes: HA does not currently support adding a new standby to a running DN.
Please do a rolling restart of DNs to reconfigure the list of NNs.
> I checked the 2.6.0 code and the error was thrown by the following code snippet, which
led me to this JIRA.
> void refreshNNList(ArrayList<InetSocketAddress> addrs) throws IOException {
> Set<InetSocketAddress> oldAddrs = Sets.newHashSet();
> for (BPServiceActor actor : bpServices)
> { oldAddrs.add(actor.getNNSocketAddress()); }
> Set<InetSocketAddress> newAddrs = Sets.newHashSet(addrs);
> if (!Sets.symmetricDifference(oldAddrs, newAddrs).isEmpty())
> { // Keep things simple for now -- we can implement this at a later date. throw new IOException(
"HA does not currently support adding a new standby to a running DN. " + "Please do a rolling
restart of DNs to reconfigure the list of NNs."); }
> }
> Looks like this the refreshNameNodes command is an uncompleted feature. 
> Unfortunately, the new name node on a replacement is critical for auto provisioning a
hadoop cluster with HDFS HA support. Without this support, the HA feature could not really
be used. I also observed that the new standby name node on the replacement instance could
stuck in safe mode because no data nodes check in with it. Even with a rolling restart, it
may take quite some time to restart all data nodes if we have a big cluster, for example,
with 4000 data nodes, let alone restarting DN is way too intrusive and it is not a preferable
operation in production. It also increases the chance for a double failure because the standby
name node is not really ready for a failover in the case that the current active name node
fails.
