Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-3389:

Given the way we serialize the names, I'd go for option B.

> Iterator Names can't contain dots

>                 Key: ACCUMULO-3389
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-3389
>             Project: Accumulo
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 1.6.0
>            Reporter: John Vines
>            Assignee: Mark Owens
>            Priority: Major
>             Fix For: 1.7.4, 1.9.0, 2.0.0
> Attempting to attach an interator who's name includes dots results in 
> messages on the remote end from IteratorUtil - "Unrecognizable option: 
> ITERNAME". No errors no warnings, when they are attempted to be attached. 
> They get added to the config without issue.
> But when you do something like listiter, they don't show up and then warnings 
> appear in the logs/on the monitor.
> We should either:
> A. allow iterators with dots in the name
> B. doc that this isn't allowed and check server side when they are set.
