Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9500) TestUserGroupInformation#testGetServerSideGroups fails on Windows due to failure to find winutils.exe
Date Wed, 24 Apr 2013 18:27:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9500?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13640754#comment-13640754
] 

Chris Nauroth commented on HADOOP-9500:
---------------------------------------

The problem was introduced in HADOOP-9299 with this code:

{code}
    // doesn't matter what it is, but getGroups needs it set...
    System.setProperty("hadoop.home.dir", "/tmp");
{code}

The logic in {{Shell}} for finding the path to winutils.exe first checks the hadoop.home.dir
property.  It won't find it in /tmp, so the test fails the first time it tries to run a winutils
command.

This is easy to fix: instead of /tmp, use the HADOOP_HOME environment variable, which is guaranteed
to be configured to the correct path in maven-surefire-plugin.  I'll provide a patch shortly.
