Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-6821) [WINDOWS] .META. table name causes file system problems in windows
Date Fri, 28 Sep 2012 22:29:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6821?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13465961#comment-13465961

Enis Soztutar commented on HBASE-6821:

The problem is that untar can create a dir named ".META." on ntfs, but mvn clean, or rm cannot
remove it, due to it's name. 

There can be 2 possible fixes I can think of. 
1. Rename the .META. directory to "-META-", and rename it back once we have copied it to hdfs.

2. Do the untar'ing on dfs. This would require a commons-compact dependency. 

I have a patch for 1, which is fairly straightforward, but just a bit hacky. However, since
TestMetaMigration* is a temporary test for upgrading from 0.90->0.92 or 0.92->0.96,
I think we can go with it.

causes mvn clean to fail.
