Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-6238) Grant on Meta Table is not taking affect.
Date Tue, 19 Jun 2012 19:34:42 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6238?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13397004#comment-13397004

Laxman commented on HBASE-6238:

context: http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/hbase-dev/201206.mbox/%3CCA%2BRK%3D_C%3D0JnJ0CCJVYCicrWCn6gPn1zoBDahUP6xaKGZPYDBVA%40mail.gmail.com%3E

Before correcting in ruby scripts, I tried to edit/flush META after giving permissions appropriate
permissions on META table to a user (non-super user). I was expecting the operation to succeed.
But it didn't due to above piece of code.

bq. What are the exceptions to that rule?
In one of our scenario, owner of a table needs to pre-create regions (>=1000) by directly
adding entries to META & flushes META.

If we remove the snippet of code which I quoted in my previous comments, META will be treated
as any other table.

Should we proceed with removing this piece of code?

Note: Irrespective of this change, we may still needs to correct the ruby scripts as discussed
on dev mailing list. Will file a JIRA separately.
