Subject How to Setup Hbase in 10 mintues
Date Mon, 22 Oct 2007 04:09:46 GMT
I had a somewhat difficult time figuring out how to get hbase started.  
In the end, it was pretty simple.  Here are the steps:

   1. Download hadoop from svn, untar to directory say ~/hadooptrunk and
      compile through ant.
   2. Move the build hadoop-xx directory to where you want to run it,
      say ~/hadoop
   3. Set the hadoop tmp directory in hadoop-site.xml  (as default all
      other variables should be file)
   4. Copy scripts from ~/hadooptrunk/src/contrib/hbase/bin to
   5. Format hadoop dfs through  ~/hadoop/bin/hadoop namenode -format
   6. Start the dfs through ~/hadoop/bin/start-dfs.sh  (logs are
      viewable in ~/hadoop/logs by default, don't need mapreduce for hbase)
   7. Go to the hbase directory ~/hadoop/src/contrib/hbase
   8. Hbase default values are fine for now, start hbase with
      ~/hadoop/src/contrib/hbase/bin/start-hbase.sh (logs are viewable
      in ~/hadoop/logs by default)
   9. Enter hbase shell with ~/hadoop/src/contrib/hbase/bin/hbase shell
  10. Have fun with Hbase
  11. Stop the hbase servers with
      ~/hadoop/src/contrib/hbase/bin/stop-hbase.sh.  Wait until the
      servers are finished stopping.
  12. Stop the hadoop dfs with ~/hadoop/bin/stop-dfs.sh

Hope this helps.
