This is my "script", which is actually a C++ program:

#include <iostream>
#include <string>

using namespace std;

int main(int argc, char** argv)
    for (int i = 1; i < argc; i ++ )
       string dn = argv[i];

       if (dn.substr(0, 5) == "rack1")
          cout << "/rack1";
       else if (dn.substr(0, 5) == "rack2")
          cout << "/rack2";
       else if (dn.substr(0, 3) == "192")
          cout << "/rack1";
       else if (dn.substr(0, 2) == "10")
          cout << "/rack2";
          cout << "/rack0";

       cout << " ";

    return 1;

So I compiled the program as mydns. It can accept many IPs and print 
/rack0, /rack1, or /rack2 in a row.

/rack1 rack2

(I tried other possible output, like each rack ID in one row, which 
didn't help)

I configured hadoop-site.xml and add this

The program is located at /home/my/hadoop-0.17.0.

My understanding is that "mydns" should be called by 

I added some output to file in the mydns program and I can verify that it 
is actually being called, with an input parameter something like 

However, when I ran ./bin/hadoop fsck, it still tells me that there is 
only one rack in the system, and MapReduce program will immediately fail 
because some "topology initialization error" (I could find the exact text 
any more).
