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

Hi Bryce,

So what you are saying is that you used this example instead?
{code:xml} 
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="configuration.xsl"?>
<configuration>
  <property>
    <name>hbase.rootdir</name>
    <!-- Depending on your platform, this may create a 'file:' directory
         in hbase home instead of the desired behavior. Try using a standard
         platform specific absolute path instead. -->
    <value>/DIRECTORY/hbase</value>
  </property>
</configuration>
{code} 

On a fully-distributed environment, it should be something like "hdfs://...". But "file://..."
should still be working even under linux. At least, it was worling for me. Are you sure there
is no typo? Can you give it another try? I will retry too on my side.

> Under Linux with OpenJDK 1.6, using a file:///XX URL in the config file creates a directory
called 'file:' in the hbase root directory. If I use a standard Unix absolute path, it works
as expected. This may work on other platforms, but it would be good to add a note in the example:
> {code}
> <?xml version="1.0"?>
> <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="configuration.xsl"?>
> <configuration>
>   <property>
>     <name>hbase.rootdir</name>

>     <value>file:///DIRECTORY/hbase</value>
>   </property>
> </configuration>
