Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9006) Winutils should keep Administrators privileges intact
Date Wed, 07 Nov 2012 04:26:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9006?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13492109#comment-13492109

Bikas Saha commented on HADOOP-9006:

Havent gone through the patch but a thing to keep in mind would be to avoid appending new
data to the ACL objects on files/folders or we may end up filling up the allowed space and
then failing subsequent operations. I have encountered this problem in some other project
so thought would mention it.

> Current by design behavior is for winutils to ACL the folders only for the user passed
in thru chmod/chown. This causes some un-natural side effects in cases where Hadoop services
run in the context of a non-admin user. For example, Administrators on the box will no longer
be able to:
>  - delete files created in the context of Hadoop services (other users)
>  - check the size of the folder where HDFS blocks are stored

> In my opinion, it is natural for some special accounts on Windows to be able to access
all the folders, including Hadoop folders. This is similar to Linux in the way root users
on Linux can always access any directories regardless the permissions set the those directories.
