Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1963) Rename metadata table ID (!0) so it doesn't have an exclamation point
Date Fri, 10 Jan 2014 14:31:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-1963?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13867839#comment-13867839
] 

Eric Newton commented on ACCUMULO-1963:
---------------------------------------

No, it does not matter.

In fact, the metadata table id can be anything now.  Before 1.6.0, the metadata table id had
to sort earlier than all the other table ids so that they would fall onto the root tablet.

> The table ID for the metadata table is problematic. The reserved character requires special
escaping in shells, like bash.
> This was going to happen with ACCUMULO-1712, but would require some effort to upgrade
and test the root table, walogs, and HDFS paths, so this is going to be postponed and not
completed for 1.6.
> The proposed new table ID is "\+m", following the conventions of the root table, whose
ID is "\+r". ("\+" can be used much more safely across filesystems and shells).
