Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-2965) Starting HDFS with blank configuration fails
Date Fri, 17 Feb 2012 11:01:59 GMT
Starting HDFS with blank configuration fails

                 Key: HDFS-2965
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2965
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: name-node
    Affects Versions: 0.24.0
            Reporter: Eric Charles

Build a tar.gz distribution from hadoop trunk (on mac os x)
Untar, blank *-site.xml configuration files are present in etc/conf
'bin/hadoop namenode -format' : succeds with ...12/02/17 11:53:32 INFO namenode.FSImage: Saving
image file /tmp/hadoop-echarles/dfs/name/current/fsimage.ckpt_0000000000000000000 using no
'sbin/start-dfs.sh' fails with Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException:
Invalid URI for NameNode address (check fs.defaultFS): file:/// has no authority.

Is this what we want (is this the expected behavior) ?

If it formats with the blank configuration, I would rather expect that is also starts.
The other way around is fail early on format with an message stating the missing configuration.

If behavior can be defined here, I will try to produce a patch for it.
Thx, Eric
