Subject SimpleAuthenticator
Date Thu, 30 Jun 2011 14:20:05 GMT
Hi,

I am encountering an error while trying to set up simple authentication in a
test environment.

*BACKGROUND*
*Cassandra Version: ReleaseVersion: 0.7.2-0ubuntu4~lucid1*
*OS Level: Linux cassandra1 2.6.32-32-server #62-Ubuntu SMP Wed Apr 20
22:07:43 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux*
*2 node cluster*

Properties file exist in the following directory:
* > /etc/cassandra/access.properties*
* > /etc/cassandra/passwd.properties*
 The *authenticator element* in the */etc/cassandra/cassandra.yaml* file is
set to:
*authenticator: org.apache.cassandra.auth.SimpleAuthenticator*
The *authority element* in the */etc/cassandra/cassandra.yaml *file is set
to:
*authority: org.apache.cassandra.auth.SimpleAuthority*

The *cassandra.in.sh* file located in */usr/share/cassandra* has been
updated to show the location of the properties files in the following
manner:

# Location of access.properties and passwd.properties
JVM_OPTS="
-Dpasswd.properties=/etc/cassandra/passwd.properties
-Daccess.properties=/etc/cassandra/access.properties"

Also, the destination of the configuration directory:
CASSANDRA_CONF=/etc/cassandra

*ERROR*
After setting DEBUG mode, I get the following error message in the *
system.log*:
