i saw that checkpoint directory is available on one only namenode(cdhname2) and not on the other namenode(cdhname1),
cdhname1---Active--- checkpoint dir is not available
cdhname2---Standby----checkpoint dir available
runnign with CDH5.12.1
my doubt is , how it can take the checkpoint when the cdhname1 became the standby and where it will store the fsimage in cdhname1.
