Subject Region servers shut down with UnknownScannerException
Date Mon, 29 Sep 2008 14:18:19 GMT

I recently set up a small hbase cluster (v 0.18) running on top of hadoop 
v.0.18.1. However I'm observing that the region servers spontaneously shut 
themselves down, usually with an UnknownScannerException. For instance, this 
weekend, I discovered that all four had shut down, with messages like the 
following in the logs:

2008-09-29 05:50:17,203 INFO org.apache.hadoop.dfs.DFSClient: Exception in 
createBlockOutputStream java.io.IOException: Bad connect ack with 
2008-09-29 05:50:17,203 INFO org.apache.hadoop.dfs.DFSClient: Abandoning block

org.apache.hadoop.hbase.UnknownScannerException: Name: -1347145425990165691

The underlying hdfs seems fine - fsck reports the hbase directory as healthy. 
After a restart hbase seems fine too, but surely the regionservers should 
stay up once they're started,

Any suggestions?
