Re: Help with error
It looks like the home directory does not exist but the copy went through.
Can you try to LOG the key fields in destStatus including path? It might be ending up in an unexpected place.

I use the LocalResource and FileSystem classes to do the relocation, per the Hadoop example:

        // set local resources for the application master
        // local files or archives as needed
        // In this scenario, the jar file for the application master is part of the local resources
        Map<String, LocalResource> localResources = new HashMap<String, LocalResource>();

        LOG.info("Copy openmpi tarball from local filesystem and add to local environment");
        // Copy the application master jar to the filesystem
        // Create a local resource to point to the destination jar path
        FileSystem fs;
        FileStatus destStatus;
        try {
            fs = FileSystem.get(conf);
            Path src = new Path(pathOMPItarball);
            String pathSuffix = appName + "/" + appId.getId();
            Path dst = new Path(fs.getHomeDirectory(), pathSuffix);
            try {
                fs.copyFromLocalFile(false, true, src, dst);
                try {
                    destStatus = fs.getFileStatus(dst);
                    LocalResource amJarRsrc = Records.newRecord(LocalResource.class);

                    // Set the type of resource - file or archive
                    // archives are untarred at destination
                    // Set visibility of the resource
                    // Setting to most private option
                    // Set the resource to be copied over
                    // Set timestamp and length of file so that the framework
                    // can do basic sanity checks for the local resource
                    // after it has been copied over to ensure it is the same
                    // resource the client intended to use with the application
                    localResources.put("openmpi",  amJarRsrc);
                } catch (Throwable t) {
                    LOG.fatal("Error on file status", t);
            } catch (Throwable t) {
                LOG.fatal("Error on copy from local file", t);
        } catch (Throwable t) {
            LOG.fatal("Error getting filesystem configuration", t);

Note that this appears to work fine when the local resource type was "file" - at least, I was able to make a simple program work that way. Problem I'm having is when I move an archive, which is why I was hoping to look at the HDFS end to see what files are present, and in what locations so I can set the paths accordingly.

Can anyone give me a hint? I tried asking hdfs to -ls, but all I get is that "." doesn't exist. I have no idea where the file would be placed, if it would persist once the job fails, etc.
