Subject when will hbase create the zookeeper znode 'root-region-server’ is created? Hbase 0.94
Date Thu, 16 Oct 2014 07:18:29 GMT

I am trying to debug a coprocessor code on hbase 0.94.24, which seems to work well on 0.94.5,
but I cannot make it work on 0.94.24.

Here is the copy of some coprocessor init code:

public class TestEndpoint implements TestIface, HTableWrapper {
  public void start(CoprocessorEnvironment env) throws IOException {
    this.env = env;
conf = env.getConfiguration();
HBaseAdmin admin = new HBaseAdmin(conf);
if (!admin.tableExists(SOME_TABLE)) {
   //do something if this table is not there

When hbase starts, in the log file I noticed that when regionserver load this coprocessor,
it will hang there inside the admin.tableExists() function. That API will try to access the
zookeeper znode ‘root-region-server’, so I start the ‘hbase zkcli’ and run ‘ls /hbase’
at that time, and I found the znode ‘root-region-server’ is not created. Since the coprocessor
want to access a table, it must look up the –ROOT- region, which location is saved in that
znode, but that znode is not there. Then it hangs there for ever. If I disable this coprocessor,
hbase can start good and I can see ‘root-region-server’ znode created there.

This coprocessor code is claimed to work well on 0.94.5, so I am wondering if there is something
changed about the sequence of ‘load coprocessor’ and the ‘create root-region-server
znode’ in hbase 0.94 serials after 0.94.5?

So my basic question is : when znode ‘root-region-server’ is created? Who create it? And
is there any fixed timing sequence of this initialization between the coprocessor loading

By the way, I cannot find anywhere to download a 0.94.5 hbase source code, can anyone tell
me if there is somewhere I can find it?

I know old version is obsolete , but this is not for production, but for research, so please
help me if you have any idea. Thanks very much in advance.
