Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6566) Hadoop daemons should not start up if the ownership/permissions on the directories used at runtime are misconfigured
Date Fri, 05 Mar 2010 20:18:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6566?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12842003#action_12842003
] 

Konstantin Boudnik commented on HADOOP-6566:
--------------------------------------------

A nasty side effect of this modification is that now a user's environment settings affect
the result of test test. Which clearly shouldn't happen. I.e. I have umask=002 and all of
sadden my test runs start to fail because dfs.data.dir has incorrect permissions.

Ideally, test environment should guarantee that environment is properly set before making
any assumptions or assertions.

> The Hadoop daemons (like datanode, namenode) should refuse to start up if the ownership/permissions
on directories they use at runtime are misconfigured or they are not as expected. For example,
the local directory where the filesystem image is stored should be owned by the user running
the namenode process and should be only readable by that user. We can provide this feature
in common and HDFS and MapReduce can use the same.
