Enis Soztutar updated HBASE-5849:

    Attachment: HBASE-5849_v2.patch

Thanks Stack for taking a look into this. I have added a unit test for boot order for the

To answer you earlier comment, I think the region server should just keep waiting until there
is an active master.

> 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.
