Subject Running HBase on Windows
Date Sun, 11 May 2008 18:45:08 GMT

I was wondering if it is possible to run HBase on Windows.
I tried to setup HBase on a Windows machine (for development purposes). I
have Cygwin installed and ssh/sshd as well. I am trying to set up HBase in a
local mode, i.e. use the localfile system. I use HBase 0.1.1. When I run
start-hbase.sh, it fails starting the master server.

Here is the exception I see in the log:

2008-05-11 19:59:39,948 ERROR org.apache.hadoop.hbase.HMaster: Can not start

Caused by:

The uri file:/tmp/hbase-C:/Documents and Settings/tpowner/hbase looks like
the core of the problem. Where did it came from ? How can I fix the problem

Thanks, Naama
