What I did when assigning META region in HBase cluster took ages…

| Posted in Troubleshooting |


Today, I faced the issue of inability to assign META region to a regionserver when starting HBase cluster. Basically ROOT region was assigned correctly and quickly (just a matter of seconds), where META region was permanently in transition state. Obviously and unfortunately, it resulted in HBase cluster inaccessibility.

Since it have never encountered such situation before, I did not know best-to-use solution.
