Subject Re: HDFS BackupNode support in 1.0.3
Date Thu, 25 Oct 2012 14:55:36 GMT
Jaco,

There is no BackupNode in 1.x. The docs were by mistake, see
http://search-hadoop.com/m/RMLq71stu6W.

Also, we're removing BackupNode and CheckpointNode in future (trunk
for now) in favor of HA NameNodes and the SecondaryNameNode.
