-NN uses up all ports (java.net.BindException: Cannot assign requested address)
We've seen this the second time. The JT had this error:
2012-10-08 11:44:03,928 WARN org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.DFSClient: Problem
renewing lease for DFSClient_1416124356

The problem persisted. Some of our MR jobs were successful, some failed
with the error above....
So I listed out all the local addresses and got about 24K of them. The
We are not reaching the limit, but very close. What's strange is: almost

available in the range.

to lack of ports - although I'm not 100% sure since the ephemeral ports
change all the time.
Here are my questions:
1. Has anybody seen this before? Any pointers would be appreciated.
2. We are using a virtual IP for the NN. Could it be related to the
