      Description

      :~$ hadoop dfs -chown aaa_bbb /user/knoguchi/test.txt
      chown: 'aaa_bbb' does not match expected pattern for [owner][:group].

      in 0.16.1, only alphabets and numbers are allowed. Shouldn't '_' be allowed?

      I couldn't find any standard, but in Solaris10, it's defined as

      http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/816-5174/6mbb98uhg?a=view

      The login (login) and role (role) fields accept a string of no more than eight bytes consisting of characters from the set of alphabetic characters, numeric characters, period (.), underscore (_), and hyphen . The first character should be alphabetic and the field should contain at least one lower case alphabetic character. A warning message is displayed if these restrictions are not met.
