Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-1913) throws an IOException that it couldn't create the file, but doesn't give specific details
Date Tue, 10 May 2011 22:33:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1913?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13031435#comment-13031435
] 

Allen Wittenauer commented on HDFS-1913:
----------------------------------------

Actually, for this stack trace, it does a pretty good job of telling you what happened:

got exception trying to get groups for user ___
org.apache.hadoop.util.Shell$ExitCodeException: id: ___: No such user

In other words, the username that hadoop is trying to use doesn't exist on the machine and
therefore can't get any group information.

> It would be a lot more useful to print an error message indicating why that you can't
create the file - e.g. can't create a directory with the name of the file you're trying to
write to.
> Also, the log file isn't much better. You'll see exceptions that look like this:
