How does someone fix an HDFS that's corrupt? I looked on the Apache/Hadoop website and it said its fsck command, which doesn't fix it. Hopefully, someone who has run into this problem before can tell me how to fix this.
Unlike a traditional fsck utility for native file systems, this command does not correct the errors it detects. Normally NameNode automatically corrects most of the recoverable failures.
When I ran bin/Hadoop fsck / -delete, it listed the files that were corrupt or missing blocks. How do I make it not corrupt? This is on a practice machine so I COULD blow everything away but when we go live, I won't be able to "fix" it by blowing everything away so I'm trying to figure it out now.
