ISSUE : Did OS Patch on all their hosts on the cluster and after that Datanodes are started but none of them are alive in the HDFS Dashboard and all the blocks are showing missing

Linux cl-master1 2.6.32-696.3.2.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Jun 7 11:51:39 EDT 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux


This is a Kernel Bug

Please put the Namenode in Safe mode using the below command

Hdfs dfsadmin –safemode enter

Then add “-Xss2m” on in between the below lines

/usr/hdp/ on all the Datanodes

exec "$JSVC" \
-Xss2m \
-Dproc_$COMMAND -outfile "$JSVC_OUTFILE" \
           -errfile "$JSVC_ERRFILE" \
           -pidfile "$HADOOP_SECURE_DN_PID" \
           -nodetach \
           -user "$HADOOP_SECURE_DN_USER" \
            -cp "$CLASSPATH" \
           org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.datanode.SecureDataNodeStarter "$@"

Please restart the data nodes from Ambari and leave the safe mode on Namenode.

hdfs dfsadmin -leave safemode
