Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-9043) winutils can create unusable symlinks
Date Thu, 15 Nov 2012 07:10:12 GMT
Chris Nauroth created HADOOP-9043:

             Summary: winutils can create unusable symlinks
                 Key: HADOOP-9043
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9043
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: util
    Affects Versions: 1-win, trunk-win
            Reporter: Chris Nauroth
            Assignee: Chris Nauroth

In general, the winutils symlink command rejects attempts to create symlinks targeting a destination
file that does not exist.  However, if given a symlink destination with forward slashes pointing
at a file that does exist, then it creates the symlink with the forward slashes, and then
attempts to open the file through the symlink will fail.
