    Hi Raja,
    Are you stating that if the file does not exist, namenode will not start? Or you are seeing errors in the namenode logs regarding the lack of these files?


    Raja Nagendra Kumar

    True, few of the servers were not starting. Server log shows file not found error and it does not start there on.
