Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-11321) copyToLocal cannot save a file to an SMB share unless the user has Full Control permissions.
Date Wed, 03 Dec 2014 19:04:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-11321?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14233351#comment-14233351
] 

Chris Nauroth commented on HADOOP-11321:
----------------------------------------

bq. For Linux (and in general anything implementing POSIX.1-2001), perhaps we can just create
the file with the requested permission, and then use {{fchmod}} on the file descriptor to
"open it up" by setting that same permission.

That sounds great.  I think we've got it now!  It's a shame we couldn't cut down to 1 syscall,
but it seems like this is what it takes to maintain the current contract.  Thanks, Colin.

> In Hadoop 2, it is impossible to use {{copyToLocal}} to copy a file from HDFS to a destination
on an SMB share.  This is because in Hadoop 2, the {{copyToLocal}} maps to 2 underlying {{RawLocalFileSystem}}
operations: {{create}} and {{setPermission}}.  On an SMB share, the user may be authorized
for the {{create}} but denied for the {{setPermission}}.  Windows denies the {{WRITE_DAC}}
right required by {{setPermission}} unless the user has Full Control permissions.  Granting
Full Control isn't feasible for most deployments, because it's insecure.  This is a regression
from Hadoop 1, where {{copyToLocal}} only did a {{create}} and didn't do a separate {{setPermission}}.
