Subject Re: Remove tablet server from running instance

The "graceful" way to do this is to ssh to each of the hosts you want to 
remove and run $ACCUMULO_HOME/bin/

Be sure to update your $ACCUMULO_HOME/conf/slaves (or 
$ACCUMULO_CONF_DIR/slaves) file to account for the removal of these hosts.

Accumulo will automatically rebalance the tablets across the available 
tabletservers (it's doing this constantly during normal operations).
