Namenode failover


Namenode failover

New Contributor



When I was doing some analysis, on the impact of failover name nodes. Is there a way that, we have only one host name for both the name nodes? Only one being active at any given point of time, this should work. Any suggestions/thoughts why is this not implemented? Or what are the consequence if we (Cloudera) have to put the same host name for both the name nodes (Active & Passive).
