Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-4603) Installation on Solaris needs additional PATH setting
Date Thu, 17 Sep 2009 21:15:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4603?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12756793#action_12756793

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-4603:
------------------------------------------

Calling /usr/ucb/whoami directly is definitely the way to go, IMO.  It is going to exist on
all but the most hardened of Solaris boxes.

> A default installation as outlined in the docs won't start on Solaris 10 x86. The "whoami"
utility is in path "/usr/ucb" on Solaris 10, which isn't in the standard PATH environment
variable unless the user has added that specifically. The documentation should reflect this.
> Solaris 10 also seemed to throw NPEs if you didn't explicitly set the IP address to bind
the servers to. Simply overriding the IP address fixes the problem.
