Rodrigo Schmidt commented on HADOOP-5826:

There are already two tests and two error messages that cover this case:

- If basedir is not a prefix of the source (which will probably happen if it doesn't exist), it'll print: "Basedir [dir] is not a prefix of source path [src]"

- If basedir is a prefix but is not a directory, it'll print: "Basedir [dir] is not a directory"

Adding a new error message for the case where the directory doesn't exist looks like a redundant test given the first error case.
distcp could have an option to preserve the full source path

Key: HADOOP-5826
URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5826
Project: Hadoop Core
Issue Type: Bug
Components: tools/distcp
Reporter: Rodrigo Schmidt
Assignee: Rodrigo Schmidt
Fix For: 0.21.0

Attachments: HADOOP-5826.2.patch, HADOOP-5826.3.patch, 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.
