Subject [jira] [Updated] (HDFS-1322) DistributedFileSystem.mkdirs(dir, dirPermission) doesn't set the permissions of created dir to dirPermission
Date Wed, 26 Sep 2012 00:48:09 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1322?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Colin Patrick McCabe updated HDFS-1322:
---------------------------------------

    Description: The javadoc of DFSClient.mkdirs() says that the permissions of created dir
will be set to dirPermission, which is not done currently.  This should talk about umask.
 (was: DistributedFileSystem.mkdirs(dir, dirPermission) calls DFSClient.mkdirs(dir, dirPermission)
to create directory and then set permissions to (dirPermission & ~umask). Is this the
intended behaviour ? I expect it to set permissions of dir to dirPermission instead of doing
an AND with ~umask ---- similar to what 'chmod -m mode' does.

The javadoc of DFSClient.mkdirs() says that the permissions of created dir will be set to
dirPermission, which is not done currently. This needs to be modified based on the actual
behaviour.

This is not an issue in RawLocalFileSystem.)
