Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2193) The NN should determine its own hostname using the same method as the DN
Date Mon, 25 Jul 2011 21:14:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2193?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13070761#comment-13070761
] 

Aaron T. Myers commented on HDFS-2193:
--------------------------------------

I'm of the opinion that the NN's hostname determination should be changed to be the same as
the way the DN presently does it, namely the result of "{{InetAddress.getLocalHost().getCanonicalHostName()}}".

It may be that there's some good reason for this asymmetry that I can't think of. (Distinct
internal/external interfaces on the NN?) If so, the resolution of this JIRA should probably
just be to clearly document how all the various daemons determine their own hostnames.

This same asymmetry exists between the JT and TT as well, but I figure we should just discuss
the appropriate solution to this issue here first, and then I'll file a complementary MR JIRA
once we figure out the correct course of action.

> When the "{{_HOST}}" replacement feature of Kerberos principal names is used, the various
Hadoop daemons must determine their own canonical hostname in order to form their principal
name.
> Presently, the NN determines its own hostname based on the configured value of "{{fs.default.name}}",
whereas the DNs determine their hostnames based on the result of "{{InetAddress.getLocalHost().getCanonicalHostName()}}".
This asymmetry can cause confusion during configuration of a secure cluster.
