Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3694) Include root password recovery steps in docs
Date Tue, 24 Mar 2015 18:04:53 GMT


Dave Marion commented on ACCUMULO-3694:

I'm pretty sure that you can run the dumpConfig admin command without needing the root password.
Which means that you can capture all of the users and their granted permissions before you
reset. This should help in recreating the users.

>                 Key: ACCUMULO-3694
>                 URL:
>             Project: Accumulo
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: docs
>            Reporter: Frans Lawaetz
>            Priority: Minor
> It would be helpful to add, perhaps in the Troubleshooting section of the docs, the semi-hidden
feature that is:
> accumulo init --reset-security
> As a stab:
> Q:  I've lost the accumulo root password, now what?
> A: Running "accumulo init --reset-security" will prompt you for a new root password.
 CAUTION: this command will delete all existing users.  You will need to re-create all other
users and set permissions accordingly.
