Subject [jira] Resolved: (HADOOP-96) name server should log decisions that affect data: block creation, removal, replication
Date Fri, 05 May 2006 17:09:28 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-96?page=all ]
Doug Cutting resolved HADOOP-96:

    Resolution: Fixed

I just committed this.

I made one additional change.  You removed the 'cd $HADOOP_HOME' line in hadoop-daemon.sh.
 I re-added this to hadoop-daemons.sh, so that, when starting remote daemons, they are always
run from HADOOP_HOME rather than the users home directory, which is more likely to be NFS
mounted.  The CWD of a daemon is used for core dumps, java profiler output, etc. and it is
generally best if it is not NFS mounted.

Thanks, Hairong!

and to debug the name server.
