Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7510) Tokens should use original hostname provided instead of ip
Date Thu, 01 Sep 2011 01:17:10 GMT

Jitendra Nath Pandey commented on HADOOP-7510:
----------------------------------------------

> The trick is to instantiate an InetAddress with an exact hostname (whether ip or host)
and it's ip – this prevents

  This seems to be fragile because InetSocketAddress API doesn't gaurantee that dns lookup
will not be invoked.

I had discussion with Owen and there seems to be a compatibility issue as well. The new tokens
will not work with old clients. For example a new client obtained a token and sets service
to hostname:port. Now this token is sent over hftp and is finally used at an old client, the
old client will not be able to use this token.

> Tokens currently store the ip:port of the remote server.  This precludes tokens from
being used after a host's ip is changed.  Tokens should store the hostname used to make the
RPC connection.  This will enable new processes to use their existing tokens.
