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.

Managing data at scale doesn’t have to be hard. Find out how the completely free, open source HPCC Systems platform makes it easier to update, easier to program, easier to integrate data, and easier to manage clusters. Download and get started today.
