Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-5360) Use UID instead of user name to build the Docker run command
Date Wed, 13 Jul 2016 07:14:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-5360?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15374501#comment-15374501

Varun Vasudev commented on YARN-5360:

[~tangzhankun] - how would you handle cases where the uid for the username differs from the
host OS to the docker image? For example, Centos 6 uses uid 65534 for user nobody but ubuntu
uses uid 99.

> There is *a dependency between job submitting user and the user in the Docker image*
in LCE currently. For instance, in order to run the Docker container as yarn user, we can
choose set the "yarn.nodemanager.linux-container-executor.nonsecure-mode.local-user" to yarn
and leave "yarn.nodemanager.linux-container-executor.nonsecure-mode.limit-users" default (true).
Then LCE will choose yarn ( UID maybe 1001) as the user running jobs.
> LCE will mount the generated launch_container.sh (owned by the running job user) and
/etc/passwd (*current the code is mounting to container's /etc/password, I think it's a mistake*)
into the Docker container and utilizes "docker run --user=<run_as_user>" option to get
it done internally.
> But I don't think mounting /etc/passwd to the container is a good choice. As far as I
know, since Docker v1.8 (or maybe earlier), the Docker run command "--user=" option accepts
UID and *when passing UID, the user does not have to exist in the container*. So we should
use UID instead of user name to construct the Docker run command to eliminate the dependency
that create the same user in the Docker image. This enables LCE the ability to launch any
Docker container safely regardless what users in it.
