Subject Piping stdin into flume shell does not work
Date Mon, 19 Mar 2012 20:31:47 GMT
Hi all,

The user guide<http://archive.cloudera.com/cdh/3/flume/UserGuide/#_using_the_flume_command_shell>
it is possible to pipe stdin into flume shell.
This does not work for me. Manually logging into the shell and running the
same commands works perfectly fine.
Any pointers as to what might be going wrong? Here's a command I tried with
its output:

# echo "connect fm-vm-010.cercs.int\nexec unconfig fm-vm-011.cercs.int" |
./bin/flume shell
