FSNamesystem.startFile throws an IOException when the number of chosen targets is less than the required minimum number

Key: HADOOP-1248
URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1248
Project: Hadoop
Issue Type: Bug
Components: dfs
Affects Versions: 0.12.3
Reporter: Hairong Kuang
Fix For: 0.13.0

When I ran a test on a one-node dfs cluster, the test failed because of the exception listed below. First of all, I wonder why chooseTarget returns 0 target when # of datanodes is 1. Secondly I think it would be nicer if startFile retries chooseTarget before throws the exception back to client.

java.io.IOException: Failed to create file /user/hairong/xxx on client because there were not enough datanodes available. Found 0 datanodes but MIN_REPLICATION for the cluster is configured to be 1.
