Sean Busbey created ACCUMULO-4491:
-------------------------------------

             Summary: operations tool to enable the administrative user in kerberos installations
w/o security reset
                 Key: ACCUMULO-4491
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-4491
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 1.8.0, 1.7.2, 1.7.1
            Reporter: Sean Busbey
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 2.0.0


Right now converting an existing cluster to use Kerberos requires using the {{accumulo init
--reset-security}} tool in order to replace the "root" user with an appropriate administrative
user principal. This has the side effect of dumping existing user permission information.

That means downstream folks have to use the config dumping tools or the like in order to save
existing permissions if they want to refer to them later while setting up kerberos users.

It'd be preferable for us to have a cli tool to set the administrative user.
