Block distribution during decommissioning

Expert Contributor



I have a cluster with datanodes across two racks, i'm removing one complete rack for OS upgrade. When i tried to decommission one complete rack, the process was stuck. However when i decommissioned all but one datanode in that rack(for testing), the process started. How will the data be replicated to the only existing rack if we take out the complete rack?
