[Solved] hbase Create Sheet Error: ERROR: org.apache.hadoop.hbase.PleaseHoldException: Master is initializing

To create a table in the HBase shell:

A few days ago, it was OK. Today, I want to review it. Suddenly, it doesn’t work.
I checked a lot and said that list can’t create tables. When I encountered a problem, list can’t create tables.
after reading a lot, I found that many of them are about the problem of zookeeper. Clearing HBase cache, I cried because I didn’t install zookeeper client, let alone clearing it.
the next step is to change the configuration, Synchronize the time cycle and eliminate strange error reports

Problem Description:

There is no problem using list in HBase shell
there is a problem when creating a table: error: org apache. hadoop. hbase. PleaseHoldException: Master is initializing

Cause analysis:

1. hbase file configuration
2. The clock does not correspond to
3. Some strange errors are reported when hbase runs (although it can run normally before, there are hidden dangers)
4. hbase is sick (artificial mental retardation)


Modify HBase configuration file

By modifying the hbase configuration file hbase-site.xml, hbase.rootdir is changed to hbase.root.dir. The following configuration file


synchronization time

directly enter the following command in the shell

ntpdate 1.cn.pool.ntp.org

3. Eliminate strange messages from HBase

Directly in HBase env Add the following command to the SH file
