sporadic failure
Hi,

Any ideas why a staging directory would suddenly become unavailable
after the completion of the map phase but before the start of the
reduce phase?  We noticed a sporadic failure yesterday wherein all the
map tasks completed
successfully and all the reduce tasks failed.  Upon examining task
tracker logs, the following exception stack trace was revealed:

2013-01-03 02:28:17,072 WARN org.apache.hadoop.mapred.TaskTracker:
Error initializing attempt_201211150255_237458_r_000108_1:

This problem doesn't seem relevant to only a specific distribution,
but for completeness we are running CDH3u3.

Thanks!
