Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4145) Merge hdfs cmd line scripts from branch-1-win
Date Sun, 04 Nov 2012 07:33:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4145?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13490145#comment-13490145

Chris Nauroth commented on HDFS-4145:

Ivan, I think there is an issue with handling of the --config option to override the configuration
directory.  hdfs.cmd has code to parse --config and then shift away the arguments.  Later,
it calls hadoop-config.cmd.  Inside hadoop-config.cmd, it resets HADOOP_CONF_DIR to a default
of %HADOOP_HOME%\etc\hadoop.  hadoop-config.cmd then repeats the check for --config, but by
now hdfs.cmd has already shifted the arguments out, so the config directory override isn't

I temporarily hacked around this on my machine by commenting out the line in hadoop-config.cmd
that sets it to %HADOOP_HOME%\etc\hadoop.  After that, it worked for me.  I successfully formatted
and started a namenode.
