      Description

      There is a situation where one datanode can have more than one copy of same block due to a disk fails and comes back after sometime in a datanode. And these duplicate blocks are not getting deleted even after datanode and namenode restart.

      This situation can only happen in a corner case , when due to disk failure, the data block is replicated to other disk of the same datanode.

      To simulate this scenario I copied a datablock and the associated .meta file from one disk to another disk of same datanode, so the datanode is having 2 copy of same replica. Now I restarted datanode and namenode. Still the extra data block and meta file is not deleted from the datanode

      ls -l `find /grid/

      {0,1,2,3}

      /hadoop/var/hdfs/data/current -name blk_*`
