Hi ,

I have shutdown hbase cluster and moved all hdfs file to s3 . now we need to create or move this backup(hdfs files ) to a new hbase cluster . i have table defination so i can create the table and also copy the data into new cluster like 

/hbase/data/namespace/tablename .


i can see table but no data . how to load the data into table .


do i need meta table information from old cluster ? or i can create a new meta for table in new cluster so it detect the data .
