Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-12420) Disable Namenode format for prod clusters when data already exists
Date Fri, 22 Sep 2017 21:50:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-12420?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16177204#comment-16177204

Arpit Agarwal commented on HDFS-12420:

Couple of comments:
# The setting description looks incorrect in hdfs-default.xml.
# In testNNFormatSuccess test case, the following lines are redundant:
    FSNamesystem fsn = FSNamesystem.loadFromDisk(config);

    doAnEdit(fsn, 1);
    doAnEdit(fsn, 2);
    assertEquals(3, fsn.getEditLog().getLastWrittenTxId());

    config.setBoolean(DFSConfigKeys.DFS_REFORMAT_ENABLED, false);
Instead we can disable reformat before the first format attempt. This will become the regression
# We don't need to call {{deleteNameDirs}} since the {{@After}} method does that.

> Support for disabling NameNode format to avoid accidental formatting of Namenode in production
cluster. If someone really wants to delete the complete fsImage, they can first delete the
metadata dir and then run {code} hdfs namenode -format{code} manually.
