Hortonworks Sandbox for HDP and HDF is your chance to get started on learning, developing, testing and trying out new features. Each download comes preconfigured with interactive tutorials, sample data and developments from the Apache community.

If you are running HBase and commands are giving you an error that looks like this:

Fri Oct 05 21:45:02 UTC 2012, org.apache.hadoop.hbase.client.ScannerCallable@74f2db2d, org.apache.hadoop.hbase.NotServingRegionException: org.apache.hadoop.hbase.NotServingRegionException: Region is not online: -ROOT-„0

Your HBase master is failing to start because Zookeeper is giving it an incorrect location for where the -ROOT- table is located. If you go into the HBase webui, you’ll see “Assigning ROOT region” as the status of the master node on startup.

To fix this:

$ hbase zkcli

zookeeper_cli> rmr /hbase/root-region-server

Then restart your master node, and you should be fine.
