Subject Re: Username on Hadoop 20.2
Date Fri, 13 Jan 2012 16:00:40 GMT
I tried this, and it doesn't seem to work. Specifically, the way I 
tested it was adding:


to core-site.xml. I then tried a test mkdir, and did an ls which showed 
the new folder had been created by my default whoami client username 
instead of the new one I had set. Do I need to add it somewhere else, or 
add something else to the property name? I'm using CDH3 with my Hadoop 
cluster currently setup with one node in pseudo-distributed mode, in 
case that helps.
