Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3222) fsck should require superuser privilege
Date Fri, 11 Apr 2008 04:56:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3222?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12587842#action_12587842

dhruba borthakur commented on HADOOP-3222:

I agree that it makes sense to make fsck do permission checking for the nodes that it traverses.
If a user does a fsck on files/directories that he/she has access to (using permissions) then
that invocation of fsck should be allowed. 

Since "/" is usually owned by super-user, only super-user should be allowed to run fsck on
