What version of accumulo?

1.5 writes to hdfs, so you would need to make sure that the wal directory
is writable in hdfs.
1.4 and earlier write to a local file system on each node.

Your message says that you have configured the wal directory to be
"/opt/accumulo/wal" and yet your error message says "/accumulo/wal".
