Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3694) Include root password recovery steps in docs
Date Tue, 24 Mar 2015 18:06:53 GMT


Josh Elser commented on ACCUMULO-3694:

It's likely relying on {{accumulo-site.xml}} and a properly defined instance.secret. The root
password isn't used at all for securing data in ZK.

>                 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.
