Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1556) Initialize could use a better warning when HDFS dir is already populated
Date Fri, 29 Nov 2013 20:04:36 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-1556?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13835527#comment-13835527
] 

John Vines commented on ACCUMULO-1556:
--------------------------------------

Sorry [~bhavanki], I also need a revised patch for master, as it was also non trivial. I got
the compile warnings resolved, but can't quite get the test passing, most likely to my lack
of understanding of easymock.

> 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.
