FAQ
If dfs.name.dir points to an empty dir, namenode format shouldn't require confirmation
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Key: HDFS-1636
URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1636
Project: Hadoop HDFS
Issue Type: Improvement
Components: name-node
Affects Versions: 0.23.0
Reporter: Todd Lipcon
Priority: Minor


Right now, running namenode -format when dfs.name.dir is configured to a dir which exists but is empty still asks for confirmation. This is unnecessary since it isn't blowing away any real data.
