Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-9451) Meta remains unassigned when the meta server crashes with the ClusterStatusListener set

Devaraj Das created HBASE-9451:

             Summary: Meta remains unassigned when the meta server crashes with the ClusterStatusListener
                 Key: HBASE-9451
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-9451
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Devaraj Das

While running tests described in HBASE-9338, ran into this problem. The hbase.status.listener.class
was set to org.apache.hadoop.hbase.client.ClusterStatusListener$MultiCastListener.
1. I had the meta server coming down
2. The metaSSH got triggered. The call chain:
   2.1 verifyAndAssignMetaWithRetries
   2.2 verifyMetaRegionLocation
   2.3 waitForMetaServerConnection
   2.4 getMetaServerConnection
   2.5 getCachedConnection
   2.6 HConnectionManager.getAdmin(serverName, false)
   2.7 isDeadServer(serverName) -> This is hardcoded to return 'false' when the clusterStatusListener
field is null. If clusterStatusListener is not null (in my test), then it could return true
in certain cases (and in this case, indeed it should return true since the server is down).
I am trying to understand why it's hardcoded to 'false' for former case.
3. When isDeadServer returns true, the method HConnectionManager.getAdmin(ServerName, boolean)
throws RegionServerStoppedException.
4. Finally, after the retries are over verifyAndAssignMetaWithRetries gives up and the master

The methods in the above call chain don't handle RegionServerStoppedException. Maybe something
to look at...
