Subject Re: Recover dfs/name
Date Wed, 05 Jun 2013 10:23:33 GMT
Thanks Ted.
In fact it's an experimental cluster so no checkpointing... and snn is
running in the same machine as nn, so I think its copy of metadata is also
deleted by my colleague ...

Does this mean that I have no choice but format/start over my HDFS?
