Subject [jira] [Updated] (ACCUMULO-3352) Confusing BulkImport error message
Date Thu, 18 Dec 2014 05:11:13 GMT


Christopher Tubbs updated ACCUMULO-3352:
         Priority: Blocker  (was: Major)
    Fix Version/s:     (was: 1.6.3)
         Assignee: Christopher Tubbs

Marking blocker for 1.6.2. I'd like to get it fixed. Bulk import is a routine operation, and
it could really be confusing with multiple volumes, given these messages.

> This is very confusing, because it refers to volumes as "namespace" (an early working
term for volumes), and it does not clearly explain the constraint that bulk imported files
must exist in a volume that is configured in Accumulo.
> Further, as an {{IllegalStateException}}, the error message does not get propagated to
the client which initiated the bulk import. Instead, an exception gets thrown indicating an
error waiting for a Fate operation. One must examine the Master logs to determine the actual
