Re: HDFS NFS copy commands fails with cannot create regular file Input/output error

@Raghav Kumar Gautam

As from the logs you can see you need to set the dfs.namenode.accesstime.precision value to 3600000. The property dfs.access.time.precision is deprecated. Ambari sets the new one dfs.namenode.accesstime.precision to 0, which disables setting access time. So, setting the new property should resolve the issue.

I have set the dfs.access.time.precision value to 360000 in hdfs-site.xml. Please let me know what am I missing here
