      Description

      As per my understanding, CombineFileInputFormat is creating splits with rackname as split location.
      When I use CombineFileInputFormat as the InputFormat for job, job initialization fails with following exception :
      2009-04-28 14:10:40,162 ERROR mapred.EagerTaskInitializationListener (EagerTaskInitializationListener.java:run(83)) - Job initialization failed:
      java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Network location name contains /: /default-rack

      at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:619)

      When I changed CombineFileInputFormat to pass just rackname (without '/'), JT wrongly resolves the node as /default-rack/<rack-name>.

      Solution is to pass hostnames holding the block(on the rack), instead of rackname.
