Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-8374) Improve support for hard link manipulation on Windows
Date Wed, 09 May 2012 18:07:48 GMT
Bikas Saha created HADOOP-8374:

             Summary: Improve support for hard link manipulation on Windows
                 Key: HADOOP-8374
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8374
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.0.0
            Reporter: Bikas Saha
            Assignee: Bikas Saha
             Fix For: 1.0.3

Hard link support for Windows does not work properly. There is some refactoring needed in
the code. Also, the code currently executes the fsutil command to manipulate hard links. fsutil
requires admin privileges on recent versions of Windows. The main features needed are the
ability to create hard links to a file and count the number of hard links to a file. So we
could use mklink to create hard links and write a custom executable to count hard links. Or
use a custom executable to do both using Windows API's.
