Allen Wittenauer resolved HADOOP-3839.
--------------------------------------

    Resolution: Won't Fix

With Microsoft's help, Hadoop now uses batch files on Windows. Won't fix!

>                 Key: HADOOP-3839
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3839
>             Project: Hadoop Common
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>         Environment: Windows XP, cygwin not installed
>            Reporter: Steve Loughran
>            Priority: Minor
>
> There have been a couple of postings to hadoop core-user in which people can't get hdfs
to come up on windows because whoami isnt on the path, which fails with an IOException error
code 2. 
> To people not experienced in DOS error codes, this is a fairly meanless number which
invariably leads to time wasted and support emails.
> 1. the error could be caught and handled by printing some better hints (point to a wiki
page?)
> 2. is whoami really needed on DOS-based filesystems?
