Rodrigo Schmidt commented on HADOOP-5826:

Thanks a lot for the comments!

1) I'm throwing an exception on purpose when <basedir> equals some input source as I don't see why we should allow this.

2) if /dst doesn't exist, /dst/dir1 is not created in the default behavior. As this is the case in the unit test, the feature is being tested (you can compare it to the unit test that copies files from dfs to dfs).

3) You are definitely right about the extra directories' permissions. I didn't check anything about them and I should have. I'll change it and upload a new patch.

distcp could have an option to preserve the full source path

Project: Hadoop Core
Issue Type: Bug
Components: tools/distcp
Reporter: Rodrigo Schmidt
Assignee: Rodrigo Schmidt
Fix For: 0.21.0

Attachments: HADOOP-5826.patch

It would be helpful to have an option that preserves the full source path when copying files from one location to another. This is specially important when archiving/moving files from one cluster to another one.
