Sivaguru Sankaridurg created HADOOP-14820:

             Summary:  Fix for HDFS semantics parity for mkdirs -p
                 Key: HADOOP-14820
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-14820
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug

hdiuser@hn0-0d2f67:~$ mkdir -p /home
hdiuser@hn0-0d2f67:~$ mkdir -p /home/hdiuser
hdiuser@hn0-0d2f67:~$ mkdir -p /home/hdiuser/prefix
hdiuser@hn0-0d2f67:~$ mkdir -p /home/hdiuser/prefix/1
mkdir: cannot create directory â/home/hdiuser/prefix/1â: Permission denied
