Subject Re: Problem running HBase
Date Mon, 14 Apr 2014 21:02:16 GMT
You're welcome. I suspect the problem may have been trying to start the
RegionServer in stand-alone mode, when only the Master is run. It was
probably looking for something the Master would do if the Master was
running in distributed mode.
