Subject [jira] [Resolved] (HADOOP-1295) hadoop-config.sh resolving symlinks leads to errors
Date Sat, 16 Jul 2011 18:34:00 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1295?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Harsh J resolved HADOOP-1295.

    Resolution: Not A Problem

As described by Doug in the last comment here, this can be avoided if HADOOP_HOME is explicitly
set, which ought to be easy to do when you are managing your versions.

Feel free to reopen if there was something else, of course.

>                 Key: HADOOP-1295
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1295
>             Project: Hadoop Common
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: scripts
>         Environment: RHEL3
>            Reporter: Lee Faris
>            Priority: Minor
> My company uses a versioned deployment system where the final results are symlinked.

> For example:The hadoop package would be located at this location on all boxes
> /apollo/env/Hadoop/
> This is a symlink generated by the system.  The hardlink can look like this:
> box1: /apollo/env/Hadoop -> /apollo/version/Hadoop-11114456
> box2: /apollo/env/Hadoop -> /apollo/version/Hadoop-10039445
> This piece of script from hadoop-config.sh resolves symlinks into hard links:
> while [ -h "$this" ]; do
>   ls=`ls -ld "$this"`
>   link=`expr "$ls" : '.*-> \(.*\)$'`
>   if expr "$link" : '.*/.*' > /dev/null; then
>     this="$link"
>   else
>     this=`dirname "$this"`/"$link"
>   fi
> done
> I am not sure why this is done.  Commenting out the code makes things work for our system.
> I assume that was put in for a reason.  Is there a solution for the original need for
this code to that can work with our use case?
