Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-506) Incorrect UserName at Solaris because it has no "whoami" command by default
Date Thu, 30 Jul 2009 11:17:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-506?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12737071#action_12737071

Urko Benito commented on HDFS-506:
----------------------------------

Hi


I think the solution is *not to change the source code* but, keep in mind that *this is not
the correct way* (but until HADOOP-4487 is solved) i proposed a solution

* Update the _prerequisites_ at wiki page saying something like *keep in mind whoami, bash
and md5sum must be present and accesible to hadoop process*
* Add some _Hadoop Solaris Installation Guide_ to the official doc

I'm writing a _Installing Hadoop on Solaris Guide_ at my blog, but at the moment is in Spanish,
i'll translated it to English and add to the issue.

What do you think about?

> 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
permissions.
