Josh Elser created ACCUMULO-1973:
------------------------------------

             Summary: Log better message when Hadoop configuration files are not found
                 Key: ACCUMULO-1973
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-1973
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 1.5.0
            Reporter: Josh Elser
             Fix For: 1.4.5, 1.5.1, 1.6.0


I keep running into this -- with the introduction of Hadoop-2 into the configuration, if you
don't properly set HADOOP_CONF_DIR, you'll get the "default" instance.dfs.uri (I believe)
which will (almost) always not work out for you.

You get a strange stack trace around ChecksumFileSystem or FilterFileSystem, but the underlying
problem is that your configuration is likely pointing at the wrong configuration directory
for Hadoop ($HADOOP_PREFIX/conf instead of $HADOOP_PREFIX/etc/hadoop, or vice versa).

We should be able to do something that makes this more intuitive to new-comers with printing
error messages.
