Subject Re: Hbase on 64-bit Windows 7: "hostname not provided"
Date Fri, 25 Dec 2009 21:18:00 GMT
I've seen a similar message in cygwin after upgrading to hbase 0.20.  I
believe that start-hbase.sh uses ZKServerTool to get the zookeeper hosts
from the conf file. However, on windows or cygwin, it returns hosts with a
newline as part of the name.  As a result, start-hbase tries to ssh to
"hostname\n" or so, and windows fails.  I have a colleague who tried it on
Windows 7 (64-bit) and I think it worked after he disabled IPv6.  Perhaps
with IPv6, windows is stricter about the name and can't handle the white
space.  Even with Windows XP, though, since hbase 0.20 I've had to keep a
known_hosts file with an entry containing a newline to match what
start-hbase gets from ZKServerTool.
