Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1766) Changing Accumulo config can prevent locating root table files.
Date Tue, 29 Oct 2013 13:50:34 GMT


Keith Turner commented on ACCUMULO-1766:

bq.  If we do go with #1 then we should have a script to handle the root tablet directory
pointer migration and documentation around it.


bq. Requiring users to run updates in the past has done nothing but cause headaches for both
users and developers.

Upgrade actions have been an automatic, silent,  idempotent part of the master since 1.3 or
1.4.  I do not plan to deviate from this.

> Looking at the code related to the root tablet I think it currently chooses the first
uri listed in instance.volumes and uses that to store root table files.  If this config changes
it seems like Accumulo will not see its root table files.
> Two possible ways of handling this are 
>  # Have init choose a uri from instance.volumes and store that in zookeeper, much like
each tablet uri is chosen and stored in the metadata table.
>  # user all namenodes listed in instance.volumes to store root table files.
> #1 seems like the best option.  #2 is still vulnerable to config changes causing a problem
