Jianfei Jiang commented on HDFS-13401:
--------------------------------------

No exception or other hints show that the hdfs folder which mounted to viewfs 
MUST exist and we cannot created by mkdir command. Is it necessary to make the 
mount viewfs folder be creatable? Or throw a exception when mkdir command under 
a viewfs path which is actually not exist?

>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: federation, hdfs
>    Affects Versions: 3.0.1
>            Reporter: Jianfei Jiang
>            Priority: Major
>
> In federation cases, if we have a config like below:
> <property>
>  <name>fs.viewfs.mounttable.ClusterX.link./foo</name>
>  <value>hdfs://nn2-clusterx.example.com:8020/footarget</value>
>  </property>
> When the folder hdfs://nn2-clusterx.example.com:8020/projects/footarget is 
> not actually exist, the command {{hdfs dfs ls /}} can still see the folder, 
> but the folder is not actually exist. then we try to use mkdir command to 
> create the viewfs folder {{hdfs dfs mkdir /foo}}, the return code is true, 
> but the folder is not created. However, when we use {{hdfs dfs mkdir -p 
> /foo/xxx}} which have a deeper location to create folder, the folder is 
> successfully created. The results in these two cases may be ambigiuous.
