Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I installed by :

wget http://archive.cloudera.com/cdh/3/hbase-0.90.3-cdh3u1.tar.gz

This is my hbase_site.xml

    <description>The host and port that the HBase master runs at.A value of 'local' runs the master and a regionserver in a single process.</description>
    <description>The directory shared by region servers.</description>
    <description>The mode the cluster will be in. Possible values are false: standalone and pseudo-distributed setups with managed  Zookeeper true: fully-distributed with unmanaged Zookeeper Quorum (see hbase-env.sh)
    <description>Property from ZooKeeper's config zoo.cfg.The port at which the clients will connect.</description>
    <description>Comma separated list of servers in the ZooKeeper Quorum.For example,"host1.mydomain.com,host2.mydomain.com".By default this is set to localhost for local and pseudo-distributed modes of operation. For afully-distributed setup, this should be set to a full list of ZooKeeper quorum servers. If HBASE_MANAGES_ZK is set in hbase-env.sh this is the list of servers which we will start/stop ZooKeeper on. </description>


# Tell HBase whether it should manage it's own instance of Zookeeper or not.
export HBASE_MANAGES_ZK=false

Here we are running our separate Zookeeper so needs to specify false. Default Hbase starts the default zookeeper compes up with Hbase.

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk

and when m starting hbase


and try to open http://server:60010 it is not opening ?

why ?

problem was that zookeeper was not started –  Rahul Mehta Oct 18 '11 at 6:04

From the comments - this problem was caused because zookeeper was not running.

Add "hadoop-core-.jar" from your HADOOP_HOME and "commons-configuration-.jar" from your HADOOP_HOME/lib into the HBASE_HOME/lib folder.Also edit the "hosts" file and replace "" with "".
