This exception is generally caused when one of your server names returned does not map to a
valid IP address on that host.. The services being up or not does not matter but the hostname
should resolve to a valid IP

Subject: Re: HBASE -- YCSB ?

     Thank you Amandeep for your input.

    I go into "hbase shell" to create a table from my HMaster, which
isn't running a DN process and I get the following.  Could this be
caused by a number of my DNs being offline, by the fact that the node
isn't running a DN process, or something else?

    hbase(main):013:0> create 'usertable', 'testcol'

ERROR: java.net.NoRouteToHostException:
java.netNoRouteToHostException: No route to host

Here is some help for this command:
Create table; pass table name, a dictionary of specifications per
column family, and optionally a dictionary of table configuration.
Dictionaries are described below in the GENERAL NOTES section.

hbase> create 't1', {NAME => 'f1', VERSIONS => 5}
hbase> create 't1', {NAME => 'f1'}, {NAME => 'f2'}, {NAME => 'f3'}
hbase> # The above in shorthand would be the following:
hbase> create 't1', 'f1', 'f2', 'f3'
hbase> create 't1', {NAME => 'f1', VERSIONS => 1, TTL => 2592000,
hbase> create 't1', 'f1', {SPLITS => ['10', '20', '30', '40']}
hbase> create 't1', 'f1', {SPLITS_FILE => 'splits.txt'}

    I can see in the ZK logs and the RS logs that they talk to the
shell, so I know that communication is good and I find no errors or
exceptions in them.

    Also I can do a hbase shell status, hbase shell zk_dump, and hadoop
dfsadmin -report all from the node I am trying to create the table
from with no issue.

    If I get on a node with the DataNode process running on it and try,
I get the following:

    [hadoop@srack0-11 ~]$ hbase shell
HBase Shell; enter 'help' for list of supported commands.
Type "exit" to leave the HBase Shell
Version 0.90.6-cdh3u4, r, Mon May 7 13:14:00 PDT 2012

hbase(main):001:0> status
3 servers, 0 dead, 0.6667 average load

hbase(main):002:0> create 'usertable', 'tempcol'

ERROR: java.io.IOException: java.io.IOException: Bad connect ack with
firstBadLink as

    I assume this means it is trying to talk to a DN process on a node
that I know is down.

You have to put the hbase-site.xml [3] in YCSB/hbase/src/main/conf/.

The only property that has to be there is the zookeeper quorum list.
That's what the HBase client needs to talk to the cluster.

Nope. You'll need to go in and disable, drop the table you wrote
too. You can do that from the shell.

disable 'mytable'
drop 'mytable'

That's all you'll need to do to clean it up.
