FAQ
Destination ending with \ should be treated as a dir
----------------------------------------------------

Key: HDFS-689
URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-689
Project: Hadoop HDFS
Issue Type: Bug
Affects Versions: 0.20.1
Reporter: Rajiv Chittajallu


When the destination for fs -mv and fs -cp ends with a trailing '/' the it should be treated as a directory. The command should fail if the destination directory doesn't exist.

$ cp motd t/
cp: cannot create regular file `t/': Is a directory
$ mv motd t/
mv: cannot move `motd' to `t/': Not a directory

vs

$ hadoop dfs -cp motd c/
$ hadoop dfs -ls c
