Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-506) Incorrect UserName at Solaris because it has no "whoami" command by default
Date Tue, 28 Jul 2009 07:49:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-506?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12735972#action_12735972

Urko Benito commented on HDFS-506:

I'm working on a patch to solve this issue. 

You're right, on Solaris is "id -un" but this command is at "/usr/xpg4/bin/id" this's a BSD
style command. The "/usr/bin/id" command is a SRV style so it has only the "-a" and "-p" options

 \# uname -a
SunOS zion 5.10 Generic_138888-07 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-280R
 \# /usr/xpg4/bin/id -un
 \# /usr/xpg4/bin/id -Gn
root other bin sys adm uucp mail tty lp nuucp daemon

But the question is at _UnixUserGroupInformation.java_ the method _static String getUnixUserName()
throws IOException_ calls to _executeShellCommand( new String[]{Shell.USER_NAME_COMMAND})_
but i think this can be rewrite to

static String getUnixUserName() throws IOException {
 return System.getProperty("user.name");


What do you think is better solution?

> Solaris enviroment has no __whoami__ command, so the __getUnixUserName()__ at UnixUserGroupInformation
class fails because it's calling to Shell.USER_NAME_COMMAND which is defines as "whoami".
> So it launched an Exception and set the default "DrWho" username ignoring all the FileSystem
