Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-2705) Figure out internal authentication
Date Mon, 21 Apr 2014 18:56:15 GMT

Sean Busbey commented on ACCUMULO-2705:
---------------------------------------

If it simplifies things, why not create it on upgrade/init and leave it unused?

It looks like [the 1.6.0 master creates the root table manually through the TableManager and
a manual call to the Initialization code|https://github.com/apache/accumulo/blob/957c9d1b34afb8a5b7347921ba2d5b0b22bbc828/server/master/src/main/java/org/apache/accumulo/master/Master.java#L300].
It's kind of heavy-weight, but would get you what you need.

> When creating a table to use for storing replication "bookkeeping", I found that the
internal !SYSTEM user doesn't have the ability to create a table. Should it?
> Without this, the user would have to create/configure a custom local user account with
proper credentials to read/write the replication table as well as persist this in accumulo-site.xml.
My first impression is that this is excessive waste because the usage is purely within the
tablet server already -- need to try to figure out if there's a reason that !SYSTEM shouldn't
be allowed to create tables.
