Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-1556) Initialize could use a better warning when HDFS dir is already populated
Date Mon, 08 Jul 2013 15:07:48 GMT
Miguel Pereira created ACCUMULO-1556:
----------------------------------------

             Summary: Initialize could use a better warning when HDFS dir is already populated
                 Key: ACCUMULO-1556
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-1556
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: client
    Affects Versions: 1.5.0
            Reporter: Miguel Pereira
            Priority: Minor


When attempting to initialize Accumulo and the instance.dfs.dir is pointing at a directory
in HDFS which has already been initialized, you get a very undescriptive warning message which
doesn't actually say refer to the fact that this is an HDFS directory.

{noformat}
[util.Initialize] FATAL: It appears this location was previously initialized, exiting ...

{noformat}

It would be better to be explicit and tell the user that their $instance.dfs.dir value already
has been initialized in HDFS instead of leaving that up to the user to discern.
