Balancing a cluster when a new node is added
I'm using Hadoop 0.20.1. I just added a new node to a 5 node
cluster(for a total of 6), there is already about 500GB across 5
In order to distributed the data across the entire cluster (including
the new node) I ran

hadoop balancer
Time Stamp               Iteration# ��Bytes Already Moved  Bytes Left
To Move  Bytes Being Moved
The cluster is balanced. Exiting...
Balancing took 356.0 milliseconds

Clearly the cluster is not balanced, but how do I force it to be so?

Q2. On the DFS UI website, when I click on the existing nodes to see
data, I can, but when I click on the new node, i can't connect.
Does this happen when there are no files? The datanode log for this
machine does not show any errors. I have managed to copy a small file
this new machine (from the new machine, so the file is stored on this
machines section of the DFS)
