>                 Key: HDFS-5293
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-5293
>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: namenode
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-alpha, 3.0.0
>            Reporter: Daryn Sharp
>            Priority: Critical
> When the NN encounters a symlink, it throws an {{UnresolvedLinkException}}.  This exception
contains only the path that is a symlink.  The client issues another RPC to obtain the link
target, followed by another RPC with the link target + remainder of the original path.
> {{UnresolvedLinkException}} should be returning both the link and the target to avoid
a costly and unnecessary intermediate RPC to obtain the link target.
