Within my pro cluster I got below output when I am checking for certain volume within HDFS:

clush -w sv1,svr2,svr3,svr4 "hadoop fs -ls / | grep <volume_name>"

svr1: drwxrwxr-x   - srvc_itg     grp_itg                         0 2016-05-26 10:03 /<volume_name>

svr2: drwxrwxr-x   - srvc_itg     grp_itg                         0 2016-05-26 10:03 /<volume_name>

svr3: -rwxrwxr-x   3 srvc_itg     grp_itg                         0 2016-05-26 10:03 /<volume_name

svr4: drwxrwxr-x   - srvc_itg     grp_itg                         0 2016-05-26 10:03 /<volume_name>

 

Outcome from svr3 looks like a file and not a directory, is this normal behavior? I've seen this in different volumes but I don't see any documentation on mapr site that mentiones this.
