Subject namenode directory failure question
Date Mon, 18 Mar 2013 14:52:07 GMT
Hello all,

We have our dfs.name.dir configured to write to two local and one NFS 
directories.  The NFS server in question had to be restarted a couple 
days back and that copy of the namenode data fell behind as a result.  
As I understand it, restarting hadoop will take the most recent copy of 
the namenode data, in this case one of the two local copies, and write 
that to all three locations going forward.  So that solves the problem.

My question is this, is there a way to get the NFS copy of the data back 
in sync without having to shut down and restart the namenode? I'd prefer 
to not take an outage if I can help it.
