Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-5709) Improve upgrade with existing files and directories named ".snapshot"
Date Sat, 04 Jan 2014 02:21:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-5709?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13862154#comment-13862154

Jing Zhao commented on HDFS-5709:
---------------------------------

bq. a prefix over a full substitution

I guess one advantage of using prefix is that we only need to set one prefix for all the reserved
file names (like .snapshot and .inode, e.g.)? In case that we set full sub, we may need to
have multiple configuration properties to support all the reserved names.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-5709
>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: namenode
>    Affects Versions: 3.0.0, 2.2.0
>            Reporter: Andrew Wang
>              Labels: snapshots, upgrade
>
> Right now in trunk, upgrade fails messily if the old fsimage or edits refer to a directory
named ".snapshot". We should at least print a better error message (which I believe was the
original intention in HDFS-4666), and [~atm] proposed automatically renaming these files and
directories.
