Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-1253) bin/hdfs conflicts with common user shortcut
Date Tue, 22 Jun 2010 21:46:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1253?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12881375#action_12881375

Jeff Hammerbacher commented on HDFS-1253:

Hey Allen,

Can you point to places on the net where the hdfs alias is used? It hasn't been as common
in environments in which I've worked. I'm afraid we're optimizing for a potential use case
rather than a real use case. In any case, as you pointed out in IRC, if a user has an alias
for hdfs, that will take precedence over their PATH setting, so it's unlikely that they'll
get bitten too hard.

>    Affects Versions: 0.21.0
>            Reporter: Allen Wittenauer
>            Priority: Blocker
>             Fix For: 0.21.0
> The 'hdfs' command introduced in 0.21 (unreleased at this time) conflicts with a common
user alias and wrapper script.  This change should either be reverted or moved from $HADOOP_HOME/bin
to somewhere else in $HADOOP_HOME (perhaps sbin?) so that users do not accidentally hit it.
