I have had no luck either. Went through the same process of copying around jars till the class not founds were gone.
Then I was getting a reverse DNS error on tablesplit which I fixed by changing the DNS server 126.96.36.199 to my own and adding a PTR.
Now i am getting:
ERROR org.apache.pig.tools.grunt.Grunt – ERROR 1066: Unable to open iterator for alias raw. Backend error : org.apache.hadoop.hbase.TableName
Seems i am almost there…
I am running latest download on Hyper-V.
I am also VERY interested in whether anyone has this actually working!
