Subject [jira] Updated: (HBASE-281) Shell should allow deletions in .META. and -ROOT- tables

]

Bryan Duxbury updated HBASE-281:
--------------------------------

    Attachment: 281-v3.patch

I was wondering, would the changes in the v3 patch I'm posting solve the problem? It addresses
the problem more from the core than from the shell, which is probably a better solution.

> For administrative and debugging purposes, it would be nice to be able to delete rows
from .META. via the shell. The alternative is writing custom java code to do such operations,
which is just ridiculous. The reality of HBase's maturity is that from time to time we're
going to have to reach into the .META. and -ROOT- tables to fix things, so I think the shell
should be where that happens.
> Currently, attempting to delete from either table gives a "non-existant table" error.
