HBase Forum

Hbase not starting up

  • #55436

    Hi all,

    This week my HDFS ran out of space so I changed to HDFS location from /var/Hadoop to my new partition /Hadoop/Hadoop/…..

    I copied the data over and all services where running fine again.
    Except Hbase is not starting anymore…

    When I start HBase I get no errors, after 5 seconds the ‘HBase master’ gets replaced by ‘Standby HBase master’ and 10 seconds later the ‘Hbase master’ jumps offline.

    How can I solve this?

    I get the following errors in my log file:
