Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8235) Support file permissions and ownership on Windows for RawLocalFileSystem
Date Wed, 30 May 2012 18:30:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8235?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13285879#comment-13285879

Bikas Saha commented on HADOOP-8235:

+        // If on windows domain, token format is DOMAIN\\user and we want to
+        // extract only the user name
+        if (Shell.WINDOWS) {
+          int i = owner.indexOf('\
Why not remove the domain in the output of winutils itself. Does any other part of the code
use the domain information?
Do you see any issues in user names clashing when the domain is stripped off? If yes, then
whats the solution. At least a comment would help.

+        // FIXME: Group names could have spaces on Windows
Is there a solution in mind? What is the jira tracking this?

         fs.delete(systemDir, true);
         if (FileSystem.mkdirs(fs, systemDir, 
             new FsPermission(SYSTEM_DIR_PERMISSION))) {
+          if (Shell.WINDOWS) {
+            // Explicitly set ownership on Windows, as in some scenarios
+            // Administrators group would end up being the owner what is
+            // currently not supported by the Hadoop security model.
+            fs.setOwner(systemDir, getMROwner().getShortUserName(), null);
+          }
Any issues in doing setOwner regardless of OS? That would make sure expected ownership is
always set
Same for the other places this has been done.

> The initial patch submitted on HADOOP-8223 does not have ability to set file permissions
on Windows. This is causing tests to fail. Jira tracks adding support to enable file permissions
and ownership changes on Windows
