Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-1253) bin/hdfs conflicts with common user shortcut
Date Fri, 25 Jun 2010 18:47:55 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1253?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12882677#action_12882677
] 

Allen Wittenauer commented on HDFS-1253:
----------------------------------------

Then you might as well close it at wont fix, and we can start fixing our infrastructure, documentation,
and/or just build our own distributions to make this go away...

...because once you ship this, it will be too late to fix it.  :(

Ideally, though, these admin commands shouldn't even be in bin.  This problem (and lots of
others) could go away simply by moving these commands to sbin so they are out of the standard
user's path.

> 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.
