Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-500) Need mechanism for init to work with empty /accumulo directory

Need mechanism for init to work with empty /accumulo directory

                 Key: ACCUMULO-500
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.4.0
            Reporter: John Vines

I don't know if this should be done for 1.4.1 or 1.5.0, but this is primarily to help support
ACCUMULO-404. In a secured installation, there is the assumption that the accumulo user only
has rwx access in the /accumulo directory and it's children. Unfortunately, Accumulo only
knows how to init with there being no /accumulo directory. While I understand we don't want
to worry about clobbering the directory, we should provide a mechanism to init on top of an
existing, but empty, /accumulo hdfs directory. This will allow the SA to create an accumulo
directory and provide perms appropriately for the accumulo user, rather than having to grant
write at the root level and then revoking that permission after initting.
