Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8968) add flag to disable completely version check in the TaskTracker and DataNode
Date Thu, 25 Oct 2012 16:53:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8968?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13484271#comment-13484271

Suresh Srinivas commented on HADOOP-8968:
-----------------------------------------

Alejandro, I can understand skipping version checks in point releases (with the convention
- major.minor.point). Skipping the version check in this patch skips it for major and minor
releases as well. What is the use case you are trying to address? If it is to allow point
releases, should the checks be stricter?

Also browsing the code, your log only prints revision when it skipos version check. Should
version also be printed? (The names version and revision took me a while to understand :-))

> The current logic in the TaskTracker and the DataNode to allow a relax version check
with the JobTracker and NameNode works only if the versions of Hadoop are exactly the same.
> We should add a switch to disable version checking completely, to enable rolling upgrades
between compatible versions (typically patch versions).
