NameNode supervisor won't start HA

NameNode supervisor won't start HA

New Contributor

When I try and enable High Availability for HDFS, my NameNode supervisor fails to start with this error: java.io.IOException: Cannot start an HA namenode with name dirs that need recovery. Dir: Storage Directory /home/dfs/nn state: NOT_FORMATTED

 

This is after I've already run: hadoop namenode -format

 

Does anyone have any ideas?
