In Hadoop, we can import the most recent checkpoint to the NameNode if the copies of the image and edit files are missing. This is the procedure:

  • First, create an an empty directory and specify it in the dfs.namenode.name.dir config variable.
  • Assign the location of the checkpoint directory to the dfs.namenode.checkpoint.dir configuration variable.
  • After that, start the Namenode with the option, -importCheckpoint option.
