>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-8093
>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: master, Region Assignment, regionserver
>    Affects Versions: 0.98.0, 0.95.0
>            Reporter: Enis Soztutar
>            Assignee: Enis Soztutar
>             Fix For: 0.95.2
> Having a table named ".META." causes problems on NTFS file system under windows, since
it does not allow file names ending with ".". 
> Nicolas and I have been thinking of just changing the name of the META to be {noformat}-META-{noformat}
> Since 0.96 is the singularity, and we already moved ROOT to zk, now seems like a good
time to do such a change. There will be no rolling upgrade support. 
> We can migrate META, and can keep BC, by having an internal alias between the old meta
name, and new meta name. This way, outside scripts and code who reads META can still work.
