TestJobTrackerQuiescence is a test case introduced in https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-4328.
Here is the code generating a file path on DFS:
final Path testDir = new Path(System.getProperty("test.build.data", "/tmp"), "jt-safemode");
This doesn't work on Windows because "test.build.data" would have a driver name with ":" (e.g. D:/hadoop/build/test). However, this is not a valid path name on DFS because colon is disallowed (See DFSUtil#isValidName()).
A similar problem happens to TestFileLengthOnClusterRestart#testFileLengthWithHSyncAndClusterRestartWithOutDNsRegister()
Path path = new Path(MiniDFSCluster.getBaseDir().getPath(), "test");
