Subject [jira] [Updated] (HIVE-16918) Skip ReplCopyTask distcp for _metadata copying. Also enable -pb for distcp
Date Mon, 19 Jun 2017 22:33:00 GMT


Sushanth Sowmyan updated HIVE-16918:
    Attachment: HIVE-16918.2.patch

Updating patch to be a little more resilient, so as to determine which type of copy to call
based on paths, rather than depend on the ReplCopyTask instantiator calling it appropriately.

(Also, note : the above test failures reported by ptest do not seem to be related, and pass

> With HIVE-16686, we switched ReplCopyTask to always use a privileged DistCp. This, however,
is incorrect for copying _metadata generated from a temporary scratch directory to hdfs. We
need to change that so that routes to using a regular CopyTask. The issue with using distcp
for this is that distcp launches from another job which may be queued on another machine,
which does not have access to this file:// uri. Distcp should only ever be used when copying
from non-localfilesystems.
> Also, in the spirit of following up HIVE-16686, we missed adding "-pb" as a default for
invocations of distcp from hive. Adding that in. This would not be necessary if HADOOP-8143
had made it in, but till it doesn't go in, we need it.
