When i check the status from webserver i.e http://master:50070 it's showing decommission status as zero value instead of 1. I am expecting that decommission value shoud be 1 instead of zero. 


Why value showing as 0 instead of 1? 




Do you have two datanodes intially and you decided to decommision one datanode . 

correct me if am wrong about my understanding  . 


I believ you are referring to  decommisioning nodes in Web Ui - which is zero 

because it states that there is  currently zero nodes getting decommisioned . hence it is zero 

if you see the dead node - u will see one because u did one already as per your statement . 


if you see conflicts then i would suggest you to perform a restart on the namenode if that is something you would consider .
