Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7214) Hadoop /usr/bin/groups equivalent
Date Thu, 07 Apr 2011 16:23:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7214?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13017025#comment-13017025

Aaron T. Myers commented on HADOOP-7214:

Thanks Aaron. According to the current convention, I think the usage string probably should

GROUPS_USAGE="-groups [<username...>]";

Thanks for the review, Nicholas. I struggled with what format to use here. The existing conventions
for the {{chmod}}, {{chown}}, and {{chgrp}} Hadoop commands would seem to agree with what
I presently have in the patch, as would the man page for the Unix groups command:

       groups [OPTION]... [USERNAME]...

That said, I don't feel strongly about this. Just pointing out that the correct solution is
non-obvious. If you think the format your proposed is correct, I'm happy to roll with that.

Please let me know what to do.

> Since user -> groups resolution is done on the NN and JT machines, there should be
a way for users to determine what groups they're a member of from the NN's and JT's perspective.
