Subject [jira] [Commented] (AMBARI-13158) error message is not accurate when a directory field value has a space
Date Fri, 25 Sep 2015 00:18:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMBARI-13158?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14907286#comment-14907286

Newton Alex commented on AMBARI-13158:
--------------------------------------

Space is a valid filename character in Linux

<quote>
File names in Linux can contain any characters other than (1) a forward slash ( / ), which
is reserved for use as the name of the root directory (i.e., the directory that contains all
other directories and files) and as a directory separator, and (2) the null character (which
is used to terminate segments of text). Spaces are permitted, although they are best avoided
because they can be incompatible with legacy software in some cases.

So should we be fixing the isValidDir() function instead?

> when, for example, dfs.datanode.data.dir.mount.file field in Configs tab has a file path
with a space, it warns "Must be a slash or drive at the start", which should be "Wrong path
" or something, or maybe a path with space is OK too.
