      Description

      There is an issue with home directories not working and this is causing users to not be able to execute cqlsh shell. CQLSH shell uses the .cassandra folder in the user's home directory for history and currently throws error and returns you to the prompt. Below is the error:

      -bash-4.1$ cqlsh
      Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/bin/cqlsh", line 141, in <module>
      os.mkdir(HISTORY_DIR)
      OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/home/testuser/.cassandra'

      In this example, testuser does not have access to the home directory.

      Requested resolution is to allow a user to access the cqlsh shell even though the home directory is inaccessible.

      The current workaround is to gain access to the home directory. This is not acceptable in all cases because of security policies of the organization.
