Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9761) ViewFileSystem#rename fails when using DistributedFileSystem
Date Thu, 01 Aug 2013 23:51:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9761?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13727103#comment-13727103

Andrew Wang commented on HADOOP-9761:

I had that thought, it's a tradeoff between clarity and duplicating the exception. I was hoping
that having a comment would alleviate the clarity concern, but I can re-rev if you want.

It's also perhaps worth noting that duplication is across sub-projects, i.e. {{FileSystem#checkPath}}
is in Common while DFS is in HDFS.

> ViewFileSystem currently passes unqualified paths (no scheme or authority) to underlying
FileSystems when doing a rename. DistributedFileSystem symlink support added in HADOOP-9418
needs to qualify and check rename sources and destinations since cross-filesystem renames
aren't supported, so this breaks in the following way
> - Default FS URI is configured to viewfs://<viewfs>
> - When doing a rename, ViewFileSystem checks to make sure both src and dst FileSystems
are the same (which they are, both in same DFS), and then calls DistributedFileSystem#rename
with unqualified "remainder" paths
> - Since these paths are unqualified, DFS qualifies them with the default FS to check
that it can do the rename. This turns it into viewfs://<viewfs>/<path>
> - Since viewfs://<viewfs> is not the DFS's URI, DFS errors out the rename.
