Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3611) Unable to enter password that contains a '!' in shell
Date Mon, 23 Feb 2015 00:41:11 GMT


Mike Drob commented on ACCUMULO-3611:

It's trying to do history expansion.

Should be possible to escape the exclamation. Maybe we can accept a flag to disable expansion
for the current session.

> I changed my password to a simple one, updated the site file, and it worked. I tried
changing it back but it would not let me create a password with an exclamation mark in it,
accumulo produces an exception saying the event was not found. When you initially create the
root user though, you can get away with an exclamation mark in your password, which is how
I got in that situation.

limiting the characters that can be used in user passwords.
