Subject Re: Hbase on 64-bit Windows 7: "hostname not provided"
Date Sat, 26 Dec 2009 07:40:23 GMT
I have a patch that runs zookeeper within the master JVM, but I dont
think it would entirely solve this for you, because clients use
'localhost' the value we ship with in hbase-default.xml to locate the
ZK process. You'd just shift the problem a bit.

How can we make life easier for you cygwin users? Why is there no
localhost for you?
