Subject Re: Hadoop 2.2.0 from source configuration
Date Mon, 02 Dec 2013 23:32:12 GMT

 Apologies if you had a bad experience. If you can point them out to us, we'd be more than
happy to fix it - alternately, we'd *love* it if you could help us improve docs too.

 Now, for the problem at hand: http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/CouldOnlyBeReplicatedTo is one
place to look. Basically NN cannot find any datanodes. Anything in your NN logs to indicate

 Also, pls feel free to open liras with issues you find and we'll help.

You are supposed to already have a near working system as far as I understand the instructions.
It is assumed the HDFS is already setup and working properly. Try to find the instructions
to setup HDFS for version 2.2.0 and you will end up with a lot of inappropriate instructions
about previous version (some properties were renamed).

only be replicated to 0 nodes instead of minReplication (=1).  There are 1 datanode(s) running
and no node(s) are excluded in this operation.

Searching on the message is of no help so far.
