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: 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?
