      Description

      The hdfs balancer tool throws a StandbyException.

      Originally, styx01 hosts the active NN and styx02 hosts the standby NN.

      After failing over from styx01 NN to styx02 NN, the hdfs balancer command thows a StandbyException:

      Balancing took 650.0 milliseconds
      

      After failing back so that active is on styx01 and standby is on styx02, the hdfs balancer command runs without exception.

      Failing over again results in the same StandbyException.

      Service ID nn1 corresponds to node styx01, and nn2 corresponds to styx02. Console output from styx01 and styx02 is attached.
