Subject [jira] [Resolved] (HDFS-8436) Changing the replication factor for a directory should apply to new files under the directory too
Date Wed, 20 May 2015 01:12:00 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-8436?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Allen Wittenauer resolved HDFS-8436.
------------------------------------
    Resolution: Won't Fix

Closing as won't fix.

This is working as designed.  Directories don't have a replication to set, so when you set
the replication factor on one, you are actually setting it on the files in that directory.

> Changing the replication factor for a directory should apply to new files under the directory

> Changing the replication factor for a directory will only affect the existing files and
the new files under the directory will get created with the default replication factor (dfs.replication
from hdfs-site.xml) of the cluster. 
> I would expect new files written under a directory to have the same replication factor
set for the directory itself.
