Adding new storage directories to existing Datanodes

Expert Contributor

I plan to expand my HDFS cluster by adding new volumes to existing datanodes. 

 

1. Do i need to stop the data node before making any change to dfs.data.dir, dfs.datanode.data.dir ? 

 

Can i make the change in CM and do rolling restart ?
