- The following are step-by-step instructions for migrating from HBase 0.1 to 0.2.  This migration
requires an upgrade form Hadoop 0.16 to 0.17, although the [http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/Hadoop%20Upgrade
Hadoop Upgrade Instructions] are slightly out-of-date (as of this writing, July 2008).  As
such, the below instructions also clarify the necessary steps for upgrading Hadoop.

0.2.

  == Other Migration-Related Concerns ==
  
+ Migration is only supported between the file system version of the previous release and
the file system version of the current release. If the existing HBase installation has an
older file system version, it will be necessary to install a HBase release which can perform
the upgrade, run the migration tool and then install the desired release and run its migration
script. (Note that if the existing installation is several versions old, it may be necessary
to repeat this process).

  === Redo Logs ===
  
  It is possible that, when running the HBase migration command, the migration will fail because
of "unrecovered redo logs."  Redo logs are generated every time HBase is started, and under
normal circumstances they are removed when HBase is stopped cleanly.  However, if you have
ever stopped HBase in some atypical way (for example, using {{{kill -9}}}), these redo logs
will persist in Hadoop DFS.  To see if you have any unrecovered redo logs, stop any currently-running
instances of HBase and enter: {{{{$HADOOP_HOME}/bin/hadoop dfs -ls /hbase}}}.  All existing
redo logs will be in this directory.  Redo log directories can be removed using dfs {{{-rm}}}
option.  WARNING: redo logs are the only way to recover any data entered before HBase was
improperly stopped.  Removing redo logs with file size greater than zero may result in irreversible
data loss.
