------------------------------------

             Summary: On first cluster startup, RS aborts if root znode is not available
                 Key: HBASE-5849
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5849
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: master, regionserver, zookeeper
    Affects Versions: 0.92.2, 0.96.0, 0.94.1
            Reporter: Enis Soztutar
            Assignee: Enis Soztutar


When launching a fresh new cluster, the master has to be started first, which might create
race conditions for starting master and rs at the same time. 

Master startup code is smt like this: 
 - establish zk connection
 - create root znodes in zk (/hbase)
 - create ephemeral node for master /hbase/master, 

 Region server start up code is smt like this: 
 - establish zk connection
 - check whether the root znode (/hbase) is there. If not, shutdown. 
 - wait for the master to create znodes /hbase/master

So, the problem is on the very first launch of the cluster, RS aborts to start since /hbase
znode might not have been created yet (only the master creates it if needed). Since /hbase/
is not deleted on cluster shutdown, on subsequent cluster starts, it does not matter which
order the servers are started. So this affects only first launchs.
