Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1717) accumulo should refuse to init or start with a directory of / (especially file:///)
Date Thu, 26 Sep 2013 19:07:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-1717?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13779105#comment-13779105
] 

Steve Loughran commented on ACCUMULO-1717:
------------------------------------------

For comparison, the tests in HADOOP-9361 explicitly test operations on root directories: rename
/ subdir, rm -rf / &c -and I go to a lot of effort to make sure that those tests do not
run on the localFS.

> Accumulo is  happy to init the root directory of a file system. It's hard to see when
this would ever be a good idea, especially if that filesystem is file:/// . A sanity check
to catch this -a sign of a bad configuration- would stop accidentally damaging the filesystem
