Some folks in Hadoop are working on landing a new FileSystem from the Azure team:
At present, this FileSystem doesn't support permissions which causes the SecureBulkLoadEndpoint to balk because it the staging directory doesn't have the proper 711 permissions.
We have a static list of FileSystem schemes which we ignore this check on. I have a patch on an HBase 1.1ish which:
- Adds the new FileSystem scheme
- Makes this list configurable for the future
