Manoj Govindassamy commented on HDFS-11022:

Sounds similar to the case as in HDFS-10819, except for the step in (5). In 
HDFS-10819, DN accepted the newer block and when it tried to contact NN for 
{{addStoredBlock}}, the NN rejected it saying it already had the block (the 
older one) and tried to invalidate it. The invalidation never went through as 
the DN did not have the block (because of storage volume removal).

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-11022
>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: datanode, namenode
>    Affects Versions: 2.6.0
>         Environment: CDH5.7.0
>            Reporter: Wei-Chiu Chuang
>            Priority: Critical

> Scenario:
> # A client reads a replica blk_A_x from a data node and detected corruption.
> # In the meantime, the replica is appended, updating its generation stamp 
> from x to y.
> # The client tells NN to mark the replica blk_A_x corrupt.
> # NN tells the data node to (1) delete replica blk_A_x and (2) replicate the 
> newer replica blk_A_y from another datanode. Due to block placement policy, 
> blk_A_y is replicated to the same node. (It's a small cluster)
> # DN is unable to receive the newer replica blk_A_y, because the replica 
> already exists.
> # DN is also unable to delete replica blk_A_y because blk_A_y does not exist.
> # The replica on the DN is not part of data pipeline, so it becomes stale.
> If another replica becomes corrupt and NameNode wants to replicate a healthy 
> replica to this DataNode, it can't, because a stale replica exists. Because 
> this is a small cluster, soon enough (in a matter of a hour) no DataNode is 
> able to receive a healthy replica.
> This cluster also suffers from HDFS-11019, so even though DataNode later 
> detected data corruption, it was unable to report to NameNode.
> Note that we are still investigating the root cause of the corruption.
