How many regions in this table?  One only?

What did your admin see?

So, there is something 'wrong' w/ that table.   Can you track it in
master log and see what happens when master tries assign it?  Maybe
its failing to open?

Maybe its stuck in transition?  You should see messages in master log
if this the case.

I don't think this documented in the reference guide (its a little too
