Subject Re: proper way to rebuild accumulo cluster

Hi Simon,

Like you found out, a full restart of everything should have cleared up 
problems you were seeing. The old servers were still using the old HDFS 

For the record, if you did have data you wanted to keep, you could have 
used `accumulo init --reset-security` which would have reset the entire 
user/permissions/authorizations database, but kept the Accumulo 
tables/data intact.
