Subject Moving HDFS Sweet Dream or Nightmare?
Date Fri, 25 Sep 2009 17:01:49 GMT

Can I simply copy an HDFS tree from one place on disk to another, modify the
config files and end up good?

I set up my HDFS in a less that the best place in my file system.  I would
like to move it.  the lazy bum in me wants to just do a $ cp ... and not
suffer.  But I would hate to take a stab at this only to uncover some
unforseen horror.
