Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-4921) HTable initialization looks for EMPTY_START_ROW
Date Fri, 02 Dec 2011 17:59:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4921?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13161754#comment-13161754

Jean-Daniel Cryans commented on HBASE-4921:

My understanding is that this is used to check the existence of the table, whether it's disabled
or not shouldn't really matter. This is not the only place where the region offline exception
is thrown all the way up, admin.split does the same thing.

What exactly was the stack trace you saw Pritam?

> The HTable initialization does something like this : 
> {code}this.connection.locateRegion(tableName, HConstants.EMPTY_START_ROW);{code}
> What is the rationale behind this ? What would happen if this region is in flight ? I
ran into a problem where I disabled the first region of the table and now I can't create an
HTable instance to this table.
> Disabling the first region is like disabling the entire table from a client perspective.
I feel this is not the correct behavior.
