Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2983) Relax the build version check to permit rolling upgrades within a release
Date Fri, 06 Apr 2012 18:31:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2983?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13248575#comment-13248575
] 

Tsz Wo (Nicholas), SZE commented on HDFS-2983:
----------------------------------------------

bq. Another possibility is that we could by default check major and minor versions, but have
a config which optionally disables the minor version check, to account for the case you describe
above. How does that sound to you?

It sounds good.

> Currently the version check for DN/NN communication is strict (it checks the exact svn
revision or git hash, Storage#getBuildVersion calls VersionInfo#getRevision), which prevents
rolling upgrades across any releases. Once we have the PB-base RPC in place (coming soon to
branch-23) we'll have the necessary pieces in place to loosen this restriction, though perhaps
it takes another 23 minor release or so before we're ready to commit to making the minor versions
compatible.
