By adding a new storage location to dfs.data.dir you are not incrementing the replication factor.
You are giving one mode location for the blocks to be copied for that data node.
There is no new DataNode added. A new data node would be live only if tweak your configs and start a new DataNode daemon.

Subject: Re: adding space on existing datanode ?
Thanks for your reply, I'm running 1.1.1, hence dfs.data.dir looks to be
the right property to add, but doing so, it would add another complete
datanode (incrementing dfs.replication by 1) whereas here, I'd like just
to "extend" an existing one. Am I wrong ?
