    Hi guys,

    I have launched sandbox and inside /hadoop/hdfs/namenode/current there is two fsimage file and multiple edit file. Is this normal? which one is correct fsimage file? When I reboot the sandbox it should merge edit files and fsimage and remove edit files. But it doesn’t. I don’t see any problem in hdfs logs and everything is working fine.

    Hi Majid,
    This is because it is a sandbox. You are correct in that there should be one fsimage file and a restart would normally merge the edit files. I am sure you could change the namenode directory or format HDFS and it would then behave correctly.
