    I noticed that hbase tables created on the Amazon EC2 virtual server no longer exist after the hortonworks instance is stopped and restarted.
    Is it possible to keep the tables?

    I am running hbase hadoop on Amazon EC2 server.
    I added hbase tables using hbase shell command. When I stop and restart the hadoop server on Amazon, I have to add the hbase tables again. How can I make tables stay on hbase?

    David,
    HBase table is persistent and stored in the HDFS permanently.
    You are not suppose to recreate tables every time you restart the cluster.
    Looks like you did something wrong…
    Please, paste all the commands you issued on the cluster.

    Thank you!
