Subject Re: TableOperations.setProperty() not setting property
Date Fri, 09 Jan 2015 00:42:15 GMT

There is sometimes propogation delay in setting the properties, since they
have to go through zookeeper and then out to the tablet servers.

Try waiting 30 or 60 seconds before checking, and see if that changes
