High Availability - second namenode (master2) issue:  Incompatible namespaceIDs
Hi,

Please help!

I have installed a Hadoop Cluster with a single master (master1) and have HBase running on the HDFS.  Now I am setting up the second master  (master2) in order to form HA.  When I used JPS to check the cluster, I found :

2782 Jps
2126 NameNode
2720 SecondaryNameNode
i.e. The datanode on this server could not be started

In the log file, found:
2012-11-16 10:28:44,851 ERROR org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.datanode.DataNode: java.io.IOException: Incompatible namespaceIDs in /app/hadoop/tmp/dfs/data: namenode namespaceID = 1356148070; datanode namespaceID = 1151604993

One of the possible solutions to fix this issue is to:  stop the cluster, reformat the NameNode, restart the cluster.
QUESTION: As I already have HBASE running on the cluster, if I reformat the NameNode, do I need to reinstall the entire HBASE? I don't mind to have all data lost as I don't have many data in HBASE and HDFS, however I don't want to re-install HBASE again.
On the other hand, I have tried another solution: stop the DataNode, edit the namespaceID in current/VERSION (i.e. set namespaceID=1151604993), restart the datanode, it doesn't work:

QUESTION: Any other solutions?

Thanks
