Subject Re: What does "Found lingering reference file" mean?
Date Mon, 21 Jan 2013 22:36:55 GMT
Did you get the name of the broken reference?  I'd trace its life in
namenode logs and in regionserver log by searching its name (You might have
to find the region in master logs to see where region landed over time).
The reference name includes the encoded region name as a suffix.  This is
the region that the reference 'references'.... so need to figure what
happened with it.  Did it get cleaned up before reference was cleared?
 (Something that should not happen).
