Subject [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-4429) Misconfigured UNIX Groups Break Hadoop
Date Tue, 04 Nov 2008 17:54:44 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4429?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Alex Loddengaard updated HADOOP-4429:

    Attachment: drwhointardis.patch

Submitting a patch to set a default name and group if an Exception occurs when fetching these
from UNIX.  The default username is "DrWho" and the default group is "Tardis".

I am not submitting a test, because UnixUserGroupInformation#getUnixUserName() and UnixUserGroupInformation#getUnixGroups()
are static methods, which stops me from extending UnixUserGroupInformation and overwriting
these methods to throw Exceptions.  I considered creating a test by creating a binary for
"whoami" and "groups" and adding these to my PATH, but I figured this was rather cumbersome
with such a simple patch.  Let me know if you disagree and I can make binaries for these.

I decided to make DEFAULT_USERNAME and DEFAULT_GROUP private constants, just to be sure to
not pollute the public interface.
