Subject [jira] [Updated] (HDFS-2579) Starting delegation token manager during safemode fails
Date Mon, 06 Feb 2012 06:09:59 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2579?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Todd Lipcon updated HDFS-2579:

    Attachment: hdfs-2579.txt

Addresses Eli's nits.

I ran the full suite of tests and they passed.
I also started a pseudo-distributed cluster and verified that it's now able to start with
security on, where it would crash before when entering active state.

Unfortunately we still need another patch to improve client side behavior to generate delegation
tokens against HA clusters -- but this fixes the non-HA regression, and I'll attack DT generation
for HA separately.

> I noticed this on the HA branch, but it seems to actually affect non-HA branch 0.23 if
security is enabled. When the NN starts up, if security is enabled, we start the delegation
token secret manager, which then tries to call {{logUpdateMasterKey}}. This fails because
the edit logs may not be written while in safe-mode.
> It seems to me that there's not any necessary reason that you have to make a new master
key at startup, since you've loaded the old key when you load the FSImage. You'd only be lacking
a DT master key on a fresh cluster, in which case we could have it generate one at format
