Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6272) Incorrect UserName at Solaris because it has no "whoami" command by default
Date Mon, 21 Sep 2009 23:17:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6272?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12758061#action_12758061

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-6272:
------------------------------------------

No, HADOOP-4998 is about using JNI so that we can stop forking.  Getting that implemented
would fix this entire issue.

> Solaris enviroment has no __whoami__ command, so the __getUnixUserName()__ at UnixUserGroupInformation
class fails because it's calling to Shell.USER_NAME_COMMAND which is defines as "whoami".
> So it launched an Exception and set the default "DrWho" username ignoring all the FileSystem
permissions.
