I am trying to build a HA cluster with 2 namenodes (1 active and 1 standby).

 

This is the hdfs-site.xml that is being used on the 2 nodes:

All hostnames like jn1, nn1, nn2 etc are set up correctly with matching ip addresses in the /etc/hosts of each node.

 

This is the output from the standby nn (nn2):

Looking at the web interface for the namenodes, I can see that both of them became standbys. Any ideas why this might happen?

Did you start the failover controller  ? or whats the status ?

HI,

 

What did zkfc log say?

I think zkfc manages namenode state.

 

Re: Operation category READ is not supported in state standby.

The following command helps me in such situation (zkfc is not running): 

./hdfs haadmin -transitionToActive nn1

Is this active-standby transition is logged somewhere in the logs?

 

I am seeing lots of below entries in logs,
