Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-9457) Master could fail start if region server with system table is down
Date Sun, 08 Sep 2013 16:00:53 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-9457?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13761477#comment-13761477

Jimmy Xiang commented on HBASE-9457:

[~toffer], [~saint.ack@gmail.com], is there any special reason we need to assign system tables
before user tables? In case user tables depend on some system tables in the future? I don't
see a system table server shutdown handler, so I assume user tables don't depend on system
table for normal operations. At least user region assignment doesn't need system table to
be available?  If so, can we assign system tables together with user tables? For example,
the access control table is assigned just like another user table.

will hang there waiting for system table to be assigned which won't happen.
