Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-11723) Should log a warning message when users try to make certain directories encryption zone
Date Mon, 01 May 2017 21:36:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-11723?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15991595#comment-15991595

Chen Liang commented on HDFS-11723:

Thanks [~andrew.wang] for the comments!

Yes, this does depends on the actual settings, it is possible that this could work out. This
is why we only try to log a WARN message. But it seems generally not a good idea to make these
directories encryption zone, if there will be things like nested encryption zone, it will
be even more difficult to get right.

I'm not sure though, should this go into documentation or log, any comments? [~xyao]?

> If a user tries to make the entire /user directory an encryption zone, and if trash is
enabled, there will be problem when the user tries to delete unencrypted files outside /user.
The problem will happen even with the fix in HDFS-8831. So we should log a WARN message when
users try to make such directories encryption zone. Such directories include:
> {{/user}}, 
> {{/user/$user}} 
> {{/user/$user/.Trash}}
> Thanks [~xyao] for the offline discussion.
