Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-17460) enable_table_replication can not perform cyclic replication of a table

Ted Yu commented on HBASE-17460:
--------------------------------

It seems tricky to make the change fully working, judging from JIRA activities so far.

Let's drop branch-1 for now.

> The enable_table_replication operation is broken for cyclic replication of HBase table
as we compare all the properties of column families (including REPLICATION_SCOPE). 
> Below is exactly what happens:
> 1.  Running "enable_table_replication 'table1'  " opeartion on first cluster will set
the REPLICATION_SCOPE of all column families to peer id '1'. This will also create a table
on second cluster where REPLICATION_SCOPE is still set to peer id '0'.
> 2. Now when we run "enable_table_replication 'table1'" on second cluster, we compare
all the properties of table (including REPLICATION_SCOPE_, which obviously is different now.

> I am proposing a fix for this issue where we should avoid comparing REPLICATION_SCOPE
inside HColumnDescriotor::compareTo() method, especially when replication is not already enabled
on the desired table.
> I have made that change and it is working. I will submit the patch soon.
