Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-12581) ShellBasedIdMapping needs suport for Solaris
Date Wed, 18 Nov 2015 18:04:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-12581?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15011553#comment-15011553

Alan Burlison commented on HADOOP-12581:

Hmm, interesting. On Solaris if the group name can't be resolved then the numeric id is output
and 0 is returned as normal. We also have a /usr/xpg4/bin/id command, which is strictly POSIX-conformant,
but I don't think the differences matter for this particular usage - they are to do with the
behaviour of -a and supplemental groups.

> ShellBasedIdMapping only supports Linux and OSX, support for Solaris needs adding.
> From looking at the Linux support in ShellBasedIdMapping, the same sequences of shell
commands should work for Solaris as well so all that's probably needed is to change the implementation
of checkSupportedPlatform() to treat Linux and Solaris the same way, plus possibly some renaming
of other methods to make it more obvious they are not Linux-only.
