Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3222) fsck should require superuser privilege
Date Wed, 04 Jun 2008 22:33:45 GMT

Lohit Vijayarenu commented on HADOOP-3222:

I agree to what Owen and Dhurba suggested. At the minimum, should we have the permission check.
Consider this.
hadoop dfs -ls honors permission, so, userA will not be able to see directory listing of userB.
While userB can always run hadoop fsck and get the listing
