Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7596) Enable jsvc to work with Hadoop RPM package
Date Sat, 03 Sep 2011 01:39:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7596?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13096549#comment-13096549

Eric Yang commented on HADOOP-7596:

bq. Out of curiosity, what is the rationale of having a ${IDENT_USER} and ${DN_USER} ?

For secure datanode, the script should be started with root user then drop privileges to HADOOP_SECURE_DN_USER.
 In the secure deployment context, IDENT_USER=hdfs, and DN_USER=root.

bq. hdfs user is still hardcoded in several locations

For non-secure cluster, datanode process is hard coded to hdfs user.

bq. Isn't it a dangerous behaviour if a user customize this directory? (and by mistake or
knowingly set it for instance to /var/log)

chmod code was legacy code.  The test log dir is to make it less destructive while maintain
backward compatibility.

> For secure Hadoop 0.20.2xx cluster, datanode can only run with 32 bit jvm because Hadoop
only packages 32 bit jsvc.  The build process should download proper jsvc versions base on
the build architecture.  In addition, the shell script should be enhanced to locate hadoop
jar files in the proper location.
