Subject Re: overriding config options on command line
Date Fri, 12 Jan 2007 18:47:26 GMT

Aslo when 'Version Upgrade' is checked in, datanode and namenode will 
accept common arguments (like -conf, -D option). We still need to enable 
hadoop-deamon.sh to pass in arguments to bin/hadoop command but that 
would be a simple change.

Fix to accept common arguments is independent of version upgrade 
feature. I can submit a patch for that.
