Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9929) Insufficient permissions for a path reported as file not found
Date Tue, 03 Sep 2013 19:15:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9929?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13756945#comment-13756945

Colin Patrick McCabe commented on HADOOP-9929:

This is a good catch, Jason.

The solution to this might be a bit tricky.

If we're listing a single path (like /a/b/c), we definitely want to throw AccessControlException
if we can't get to c.

If we're listing a glob like /a/*/c, I'm not sure if we want to abort the whole glob (by throwing
an exception), just because one path was not accessible to us.  Perhaps we should just return
the things we can get to?  For what it's worth, the old behavior in branch-1 is to abort the
whole glob, I believe.

Another aspect is that exceptions such as StandbyException, etc. should *always* just propagate
to the top level.  Basically any IOException that we don't specifically catch (like permission
denied, etc.) we should propagate to the top level, aborting the globStatus.

>             Project: Hadoop Common

>            Reporter: Jason Lowe
> Using "hadoop fs -ls" to list a path where the permissions of a parent directory are
insufficient ends up reporting "no such file or directory" on the full path rather than reporting
the permission issue.  For example:
> {noformat}
> $ hadoop fs -ls /user/abc/tests/data
> ls: `/user/abc/tests/data': No such file or directory
> $ hadoop fs -ls /user/abc
> ls: Permission denied: user=somebody, access=READ_EXECUTE, inode="/user/abc":abc:hdfs:drwx------
> {noformat}
