Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-6983) DirectoriesTest fails when run as root
Date Fri, 04 Apr 2014 21:27:25 GMT
Brandon Williams created CASSANDRA-6983:

             Summary: DirectoriesTest fails when run as root
                 Key: CASSANDRA-6983
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Tests
            Reporter: Brandon Williams
            Assignee: Yuki Morishita
             Fix For: 2.0.7

When you run the DirectoriesTest as a normal user, it passes because it fails to create the
'bad' directory:

    [junit] ------------- Standard Error -----------------
    [junit] ERROR 16:16:18,111 Failed to create /tmp/cassandra4119802552776680052unittest/ks/bad
    [junit]  WARN 16:16:18,112 Blacklisting /tmp/cassandra4119802552776680052unittest/ks/bad
for writes
    [junit] ------------- ---------------- ---------------

But when you run the test as root, it succeeds in making the directory, causing an assertion
failure that it's unwritable:

    [junit] Testcase: testDiskFailurePolicy_best_effort(org.apache.cassandra.db.DirectoriesTest):
    [junit] junit.framework.AssertionFailedError: 
    [junit]     at org.apache.cassandra.db.DirectoriesTest.testDiskFailurePolicy_best_effort(

It seems to me that we shouldn't be relying on failing the make the directory.  If we're just
going to test a nonexistent dir, why try to make one at all?  And if that is supposed to succeed,
then we have a problem with either the test or blacklisting.
