Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-11120) hadoop fs -rmr gives wrong advice
Date Wed, 24 Sep 2014 05:13:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-11120?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14145909#comment-14145909

Vinayakumar B commented on HADOOP-11120:

I believe you might have got the full error message as below
{noformat}rm: Unknown command
Did you mean -rm?  This command begins with a dash.{noformat}

I feel its correct. ''rmr" and "rm" are commands. And to use any commands with fsshell we
should prefix them with '-'.
