Subject what happens when a datanode rejoins?
Date Tue, 11 Sep 2012 07:14:11 GMT

What happens when an existing (not new) datanode rejoins a cluster for following scenarios:

1.       Some of the blocks it was managing are deleted/modified?

2.       The size of the blocks are now modified say from 64MB to 128MB?

3.       What if the block replication factor was one (yea not in most deployments but say
incase) so does the namenode recreate a file once the datanode rejoins?
