Subject TaskTracker: exception thrown when changing perms fails - hadoop on Windows
Date Sun, 08 Jan 2012 18:23:07 GMT
To Whom It May Concern:

I am running:

 haddop version (downloaded from http://hadoop.apache.org/common/
Java version 1.7.0_02
Cygwin and ssh

on a Windows XP OS.

Overall the problems I have seen in the log files involve unexpected
directory permission settings of: rwxrwxrwxt when rwxr-xr-x was expected.
In all but the TaskTracker, I was able to solve this problem manually
simply by executing chmod -R 755. In the case of the TaskTracker, although
I manually changed the permissions, when I run start-mapred.sh, it
apparently is recreating this part of the directory tree with the
rwxrwxrwxt perms, then programatically attempting to change the permissions
to 755. An exception is thrown (please see the log file contents below)
when this attempt is made.

I'm at a loss currently on how to rectify this. Note, I'm just beginning
with hadoop and do not have really any background. I'm working my way
through Tom White's, "Hadoop The Definitve Guide".

P.S. I should mention that my other log files are now error-free (after my
manually changing permissions) and I am able to run hadoop commands from
the cygwin command line.
