>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: namenode
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-alpha
>            Reporter: Harsh J
>            Assignee: Xiao Chen
>            Priority: Trivial
>         Attachments: HDFS-5802.001.patch, HDFS-5802.002.patch
> This came up during the discussion on a forum at http://community.cloudera.com/t5/Batch-Processing-and-Workflow/Permission-denied-access-EXECUTE-on-getting-the-status-of-a-file/m-p/5049#M162
surrounding an fs.exists(…) check running on a path /foo/bar, where /foo is a file and not
a directory.
> In such a case, NameNode yields a user-confusing message of {{Permission denied: user=foo,
access=EXECUTE, inode="/foo":foo:foo:-rw-r--r--}} instead of clearly saying (and realising)
"/foo is not a directory" or "/foo is a file" before it tries to traverse further down to
locate the requested path.
