Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-3952) bin/accumulo should verify log4j.jar was found
Date Fri, 31 Jul 2015 17:55:04 GMT
Josh Elser created ACCUMULO-3952:

             Summary: bin/accumulo should verify log4j.jar was found
                 Key: ACCUMULO-3952
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: scripts
    Affects Versions: 1.7.0, 1.6.3, 1.6.2, 1.6.1, 1.6.0
            Reporter: Josh Elser
            Assignee: Josh Elser
             Fix For: 1.6.4, 1.7.1, 1.8.0

Just spent a few hours trying to wrangle this one down. Ambari was failing to start all Accumulo
components. After digging in, I realized that when Ambari was invoking {{accumulo}}, it was
failing to find the log4j jar.

It turns out this was a deployment issue where the home directory for the {{accumulo}} user
was never created and the find command failed:

find: cannot stat current directory: Permission denied

Sadly, I couldn't find this error until I manually edited the accumulo script to remove the
{{2>/dev/null}} redirect. We should have been able to realize that we never found the log4j
jar and then clearly printed an error and exited instead of leading me on a goosechase by
silently proceeding.

Same goes for the slf4j jars.
