Sean Busbey commented on HBASE-5534:

[~posix4e] do the changes in HBASE-11658 sufficiently fix this for you?

> So I was trying to write some simple scripts to verify client connections to HBase using
the shell and I noticed that the HBase shell always returns 0 even when it can't connect to
an HBase server. I'm not sure if this is the best option. What would be neat is if you had
some capability to run commands like
> hbase shell --command='disable table;\ndrop table;' and it would error out if any of
the commands fail to succeed. echo "disable table" | hbase shell could continue to work as
it does now.
