Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-5935) New Namenode UI FS browser should throw smarter error messages
Date Wed, 12 Feb 2014 17:56:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-5935?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13899341#comment-13899341
] 

Steve Loughran commented on HDFS-5935:
--------------------------------------

# the FS browser should be able to look at hdfs-site.xml and know whether or not webhdfs is
enabled.
# is the browser doing loopback or public IP address GETs? If the latter, there's a whole
other set of causes (iptables, hostname wrong, etc). A wiki entry is the only way to list
these & maintain that list

>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: namenode
>    Affects Versions: 2.3.0
>            Reporter: Travis Thompson
>            Assignee: Travis Thompson
>            Priority: Minor

> When browsing using the new FS browser in the namenode, if I try to browse a folder that
I don't have permission to view, it throws the error:
> {noformat}
> Failed to retreive data from /webhdfs/v1/system?op=LISTSTATUS, cause: Forbidden
> WebHDFS might be disabled. WebHDFS is required to browse the filesystem.
> {noformat}
> The reason I'm not allowed to see /system is because I don't have permission, not because
WebHDFS is disabled.
