Re: Issue on formating the file system
Hai Huang 2012-02-04, 03:16
It is

  <property>
    <name>dfs.namenode.name.dir</name>
    <value>${HADOOP_NN_DIR}</value>
  </property>

Is the issue of the value of ${HADOOP_NN_DIR}  ? I do not find it is defined in somewhere.

Thanks,

Hai

What is your dfs.namenode.name.dir configured to, in hdfs-site.xml?
