"could only be replicated to 0 nodes, instead of 1"

I am trying to install/configure hadoop on a cluster with several computers.
I followed exactly the instructions in the hadoop website for configuring
multiple slaves, and when I run start-all.sh I get no errors - both datanode
and tasktracker are reported to be running (doing ps awux | grep hadoop on
the slave nodes returns two java processes). Also, the log files are empty -
nothing is printed there. Still, when I try to use bin/hadoop dfs -put,
I get the following error:

# bin/hadoop dfs -put w.txt w.txt
put: java.io.IOException: File /user/scohen/w4.txt could only be replicated
to 0 nodes, instead of 1

and a file of size 0 is created on the DFS (bin/hadoop dfs -ls shows it).

I couldn't find much information about this error, but I did manage to see
somewhere it might mean that there are no datanodes running. But as I said,
start-all does not give any errors. Any ideas what could be problem?

Thanks.

This happens to me, when the dfs has gotten into an inconsistent state.

NOTE: you will lose all of the contents of your HDS file system.

What I hae to do, is stop dfs, remove the contents of the dfs
directories on all the machines, hadoop namenode -format on the
controller, then restart dfs.
That consistently fixes the problem for me. This may be serious overkill
but it works.

I did this several times, while tuning the configuration in all kinds of
way... But still, nothing helped -
Even when I stop everything, reformat and start it back again, I get this
error whenever trying to use dfs -put.

Check http://namenode_host:50070/dfshealth.jsp to see if your cluster is
out of safemode or not and how many datanodes are up.

You could check .out/.log files under the log directory to see if there
is any error starting datanodes/namenode.

start-all return does not mean datanodes are ok. Did you check if there
are any datanodes alive? You can check from http://namenode:50070/.

Can you check the datanode and namenode logs and see if all are up and running? I am assuming you are running this on single host hence replication of 1.
Thanks,

Could you please go to the dfs webUI and check how many datanodes are up and
how much available space each has?

Hi,
If you are getting this in windows environment (2003 64 bit). We have faced
the same problem. Now we tried the following steps and it started working.
1)Install cygwin and ssh.
2) Downloaded the stable version Hadoop - hadoop-0.17.2.1.tar.gz as on
13/Nov/2008
3) Untar it via cygwin (tar xvfz hadoop-0.17.2.1.tar.gz). please DONOT use
WINZIP to untar.
4) We tried running the sudo distribution example provided in quickstart
(http://hadoop.apache.org/core/docs/current/quickstart.html) and it worked.

Thanks
