Two DataNodes cannot carry 3 replicas as each replica must reside on a
unique DataNode host. Either add a third DataNode, or change the
replication factor to 2 to match your DataNode count.

Re: hdfs fs -setrep -w 3 fails and Target Replicas is 3 but found 2 live replica(s), 0 decommissione

The general rule is that N replicas require N DataNodes to be placed. So you cannot have 4 living replicas on a cluster of 3 DataNodes.

In such a case, you'd only observe 3 live replicas, and the block will be marked under-replicated (with target required as 4 but live possibility capping at 3), just like your previous situation. The file should still be readable/writable though.

i have added one node and tried hadoop fs -setrep -w 3 /

it is working.....

no under Replicas.......
