             Summary: ShellServerIT.addauths fails to correctly deal with cached authorizations
                 Key: ACCUMULO-3973
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-3973
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: test
            Reporter: Josh Elser
            Assignee: Josh Elser
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 1.6.4, 1.7.1, 1.8.0


Saw a test failure of ShellServerIT.addauths against 1.7.0 with the minicluster running with
Kerberos in which the {{getauths}} command didn't contain the expected authorizations which
were just added.

The server-side getauths implementation returns the authorization for a user from ZooCache
which means the client may not get a consistent view of the value. The test tries to work
around this, retrying when an incorrect value is noticed after sleeping for a short time.

The problem is that the catch block catches Exception while the test code throws AssertionError
which isn't an Exception (but an Error). As such, the retry logic fails and the test will
fail if the server doesn't see the cache update soon enough.
