Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-4640) Accumulo shell is expecting instance.volumes in client.conf instead of accumulo-site.xml
Date Wed, 31 May 2017 14:49:04 GMT


Michael Miller commented on ACCUMULO-4640:

bq.  Essentially with "-z" (or "-zi") you are giving the shell the information that it would
otherwise have to figure out from HDFS after looking up the value of instance.volumes in accumulo-site.xml
(or client.conf since 1.8.1).

Correct, except the Shell first looks for "" and "" from
client.conf.  If it can't find either of those two properties, it will than try to read them
from accumulo-site.xml.  The "instance.volumes" property is not a client property, it is only
for use in the server configuration file, accumulo-site.xml

bq. I guess the question is then: when "-z" (or "-zi") are not provided as arguments to it
should the shell pick up the value of instance.volumes from accumulo-site.xml or client.conf?
1.8.1 takes the value from client.conf where 1.7.x and 1.8.0 take the value from accumulo-site.xml.

Your client.conf should set the "" and "" properties.
 This will prevent the shell from having to read accumulo-site.xml.

I can see how this appears to be a bug but this change was made so the Shell would function
as intended (more like a client).  Previously it was always reading from accumulo-site.xml.
 The Shell was only supposed to fall back to reading from accumulo-site.xml (for backwards
compatibility) when it couldn't get the information it needed from client.cont.  Now, with
this change you can properly secure accumulo-site.xml and run the shell with "-z" (or "-zi"
and "-zh").

> The location used to look up the instance_id (hdfs://master:9000/accumulo/instance_id)

it is being worked out.

> Again, within the same environment as selected above apart for using Accumulo 1.8.0,
the shell can be invoked without issues.
> Here's a snippet from accumulo-site.xml:
>   <property>
>     <name>instance.volumes</name>
>     <value>hdfs://master:9000/user/accumulo/accumulo</value>
>     <description>comma separated list of URIs for volumes. example: hdfs://localhost:9000/accumulo</description>
>   </property>
> For historical reasons our "root volume" is not / but /user/accumulo although the above
stack trace suggests that / is being used as root volume.
