------------------------------------------

             Summary: Add method(s) which could test for the presence of an HDFS filesystem
without authentication
                 Key: HDFS-3674
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3674
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: hdfs client
            Reporter: Colin Patrick McCabe
            Priority: Minor


It would be nice to have a method or methods in the HDFS client that could test for the presence
of an HDFS filesystem without requiring authentication.  For example, in fuse_dfs, there is
an option called -oinitchecks which tries to test whether the configuration is correct by
calling hdfsConnect immediately after fuse starts.  However, this doesn't really work with
Kerberos, since root is probably not kinit'ed.
