Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6988) Add support for reading multiple hadoop delegation token files
Date Thu, 07 Oct 2010 22:22:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6988?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12919082#action_12919082

Aaron T. Myers commented on HADOOP-6988:

Even if it's not intended for job submission, it's documented as being the preferred way to
pass token files to bin/hadoop for the purpose of running HDFS commands.

>From the HDFS user guide:

The HDFS fetchdt command is not a Hadoop shell command. It can be run as 'bin/hadoop fetchdt
DTfile'. After you got the token you can run an HDFS command without having Kerberos tickets,
by pointing HADOOP_TOKEN_FILE_LOCATION environmental variable to the delegation token file.

Thus, this change could be useful for any HDFS command which is capable of communicating with
multiple distinct NNs.

> It would be nice if there were a way to specify multiple delegation token files via the
HADOOP_TOKEN_FILE_LOCATION environment variable and the "mapreduce.job.credentials.binary"
configuration value. I suggest a colon-separated list of paths, each of which is read as a
separate delegation token file.
