Any HBASE success with Pig & Hue

  • #58652
    Scott Saufferer

    I’ve been trying to run various tests/tutorials, etc of using Pig via Hue to read and write to HBASE in the freshly downloaded and installed sandbox environment. Every trial fails with some java error or another. Many of which are class not found exceptions (do I need to register every jar myself in the pig script?)

    Is anyone else having luck with using HBASE via Pig in the sandbox?

    Here’s an example of the many different errors I’m getting:

    1) java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: Class org.apache.hadoop.hbase.mapreduce.TableSplit not found
    2) 2014-08-12 16:38:41,737 [main] ERROR – ERROR 2998: Unhandled internal error. org.apache.hadoop.hbase.protobuf.generated.ClientProtos$MutationProto$MutationType

    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 to my own and adding a PTR.
    Now i am getting:
    ERROR – 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!

    I got it working!
    log in as root:
    sudo cp /usr/lib/hbase/lib/hbase-*hadoop2.jar /usr/lib/Hadoop/lib
    sudo cp /usr/lib/hbase/lib/htrace*.jar /usr/lib/Hadoop/lib
    sudo cp /usr/lib/hbase/lib/protobuf*.jar /usr/lib/Hadoop/lib

    + i have the reverse DNS set up on my own DNS server. Changed resolv.conf to point to my own server.. NOTE: it changes back each reboot.
