Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4666) Disallow users to create file/dir named ".snapshot"
Date Mon, 15 Apr 2013 19:58:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4666?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13632097#comment-13632097
] 

Aaron T. Myers commented on HDFS-4666:
--------------------------------------

Sounds fine to me to do it in a separate JIRA if we later decide it's necessary. I think automatic
rename with a WARN printed in the log when upgrading is the best option, but this implementation
+ a release note is fine for now.

> Currently ".snapshot" is reserved by snapshots as a special tag to specify the path leading
to snapshot copies. We should disallow users to create file/dir using name ".snapshot".
