Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-2972) ChangeSecret needs better documentation
Date Wed, 02 Jul 2014 16:53:28 GMT
Sean Busbey created ACCUMULO-2972:
-------------------------------------

             Summary: ChangeSecret needs better documentation
                 Key: ACCUMULO-2972
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-2972
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: docs
    Affects Versions: 1.6.0, 1.5.1, 1.5.0
            Reporter: Sean Busbey
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 1.5.2, 1.6.1


Right now, the only mention of how to change an instance secret [is a note on the instance.secret
property|http://accumulo.apache.org/1.6/accumulo_user_manual.html#_instance_secret] and the
example invocation is wrong.

The correct invocation:

{code}
accumulo org.apache.accumulo.server.util.ChangeSecret
{code}

The instructions should specify the following caveats

  # The cluster must be down before running (verified by the tool)
  # The command should be run as the user that controls the existing Accumlo files in HDFS
(ref ACCUMULO-2971)

The instructions for use should probably go in the troubleshooting section of the manual,
and then get a link from the instance.secret property as well as [the accumulo settings section
that talks about the instance secret|http://accumulo.apache.org/1.6/accumulo_user_manual.html#_accumulo_settings].
