follows is the long story.
> I am unable to get HBase to work when using BYON nodes due to the following error:
> {noformat}
> 2011-07-14 14:46:07,837 FATAL org.apache.hadoop.hbase.master.HMaster: Unhandled exception.
Starting shutdown.
> java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Wrong FS: hdfs://, expected:
>         at org.apache.hadoop.fs.FileSystem.checkPath(FileSystem.java:410)
>         at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.DistributedFileSystem.checkPath(DistributedFileSystem.java:106)
> {noformat}
> The situation is I'm using two VirtualBox instances whose hostnames I defined manually
through /etc/hosts
> In the byon yaml file, I specify the host by IP address:
> {noformat}
>     - id: ubuntutest2
>       hostname:
> {noformat}
> When specifying the hostname instead, I get an error when starting Whirr:
> invalid IP address: ubuntutest2
> This message is produced in the constructor of Cluster.Instance, earlier Whirr got the
address by calling NodeMetadata.getPublicAddresses(), so jclouds returns there a hostname
rather than an address (which might be considered a bug in jclouds, but even if it returned
an ip address, the problem described next stays true).
> Back to the case where I specify the IP address in the byon yaml:
> The address in the hdfs URL is determined in HBaseMasterClusterActionHandler and comes
down to:
> instance.getPublicAddress().getHostName()
> which is determined by xbill/dnsjava (see DnsUtil), which does not make use of /etc/hosts.
> As fix (see attached patch), I propose to fall back to Java's getCanonicalHostName()
in case dnsjava did not return any results.
