Getting PleaseHoldException: Master is initializing on create/disable tables

New Contributor

Hi,

getting the below error from Hbase shell on disabling a table. I'm able to run list and count commands.

ERROR: org.apache.hadoop.hbase.PleaseHoldException: Master is initializing
at org.apache.hadoop.hbase.master.HMaster.checkInitialized(HMaster.java:2966)

I have tried clearing the zookeeper /hbase-unsecure as well as deleting version-2 from all zookeeper nodes.

Have restarted the cluster still no help.

 

My logs look like this.
