Subject 答复: Can't remove a znode because of ACL issue.
Date Sun, 01 Jul 2012 10:41:45 GMT
It need to restart the zk server to enable the super user, right? If so, it
won't help. Because the zk cluster is serving online. We can't stop and
restart the service.

Here are the things I did according to the document, but it didn't work.
My zk cluster contains 4 machines. I select one of them and change the
zookeeper/bin/zkCli.sh on it. A new line is added like the following code:

$JAVA "-Dzookeeper.log.dir=${ZOO_LOG_DIR}"
"-Dzookeeper.root.logger=${ZOO_LOG4J_PROP}" \
Fh8f+1Gwv62s='" \   // this line is new added
     org.apache.zookeeper.ZooKeeperMain $@

super:VQ6+KW+63miPakJFh8f+1Gwv62s=  is the digest data.
Then I run ./zkCli.sh to connect to the server, and 
addauth digest super:<password>  

But I still can't change the ACL of /Apple/Boy znode because of ACL 
So, I guess I need to restart all the 4 zk servers to make the
zookeeper.DigestAuthenticationProvider.superDigest property taken into
Am I right?

You can fabricate super user credentials and then enable the super user in
your cluster's configs.  After rolling the cluster you can authenticate as
super and then do as you will with any node.  See
