      Description

      For a domain joined Windows machine, user name along is not a unique identifier. User name plus domain name is need in order to unique identify the user. For example, we can have both ‘Win1\Alex’ and ‘Redmond\Alex’ on a computer named Win1 that joins Redmond domain. In order to avoid ambiguity, ‘whoami’ on Windows and the new ‘winutils’ created in Hadoop-8235 both return [domain][username] as the username. In Hadoop, we only use user name right now. This may lead to some inconsistency, and production bugs if users of the same name exist on the machine.
