Subject Re: Renaming hosts in Accumulo cluster?
Date Thu, 01 Sep 2016 22:04:26 GMT
Hi Dima,

This really comes down to the Namenode's FQDN being renamed, not the 
rest of the Accumulo nodes.

Accumulo stores full URI's to files (e.g. 
hdfs://nn:8020/accumulo/../foo.rf) which is why this is an issue. 
Suddenly, Accumulo can't find any of the files in HDFS.

You can use instance.volumes.replacements in accumulo-site.xml to handle 
the rename automatically.

has a concrete example of this in practice (moving from a single NN to a 
HA nameservice).
