Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-1173) HBase configuration wizard
Date Thu, 22 Jul 2010 14:14:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1173?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12891180#action_12891180

Lars George commented on HBASE-1173:

I think this is what Jon and I talked about (in parts) at HUG11 to implement as 

$ hbase create-config

which guides the user through simple questions that creates the required configs. We can then
revive this issue as opposed to creating a new one.

> There are some aspects of HBase configuration that will be daunting for new users. For
example, Zookeeper configuration needs to list all hosts so it can determine quorum. New users
won't necessarily even understand the distinction between HBase and Zookeeper.  Let's produce
a bash configuration wizard that can generate all necessary config files or file edits based
on the answers provided to a few simple questions. This will allow neophytes to quickly spin
up clusters correctly without duplicating common errors. Advanced configuration is out of
scope for this issue.
