Subject RE: Adding dfs.name.dir

Thanks Joey,

So this means, I edit the hdfs-site.xml file to reflect the empty directory, restart the namenode.

Will Namenode populate  all the metadata to the  newly added  directory ?

Just wanted to make sure I do everything right.  While  googling, I also noticed issues when
one of the directories becomes unavailable (NFS mount), HDFS hangs, is this still true ?

You need to restart the namenode for the new setting to take effect.
The namenode will be unavailable for a while during the restart.
