Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-13845) Expire of one region server carrying meta can bring down the master

             Summary: Expire of one region server carrying meta can bring down the master
                 Key: HBASE-13845
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-13845
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: master
    Affects Versions: 1.1.0
            Reporter: Jerry He

There seems to be a code bug that can cause expiration of one region server carrying meta
to bring down the master under certain case.

Here is the sequence of event.

a) The master detects the expiration of a region server on ZK, and starts to expire the region
b) Since the failed region server carries meta, the shutdown handler will call verifyAndAssignMetaWithRetries()
during processing the expired rs.
c)  In verifyAndAssignMeta(), there is a logic to verifyMetaRegionLocation
      this.server.getZooKeeper(), timeout)) {
    } else if (serverName.equals(server.getMetaTableLocator().getMetaRegionLocation(
      this.server.getZooKeeper()))) {
      throw new IOException("hbase:meta is onlined on the dead server "
          + serverName);
If we see the meta region is still alive on the expired rs, we throw an exception.
We do some retries (default 10x1000ms) for verifyAndAssignMeta.
If we still get the exception after retries, we abort the master.

The problem happens when the expired is slow processing its own expiration or has a slow death,
and is still able to respond to master's meta verification in the meantime
