Re: issue about namenode format command
Looks like the doc's on apache are missing this info.

Format in Hadoop 2 supports the following options

-format [-clusterid cid ] [-force] [-nonInteractive]
-nonInteractive will not prompt but will fail if the name dir exists.

-force will not prompt and will delete the contents of the name dir.
