Hbase - How to fix failed regions

New Contributor

Hi, 

 

we have a 3 datanode hadoop cluster (CDH 5.10). the replication factor is set to 2.  now we cannot access data from Hbase table due to failed regions on that table. could somebody can give me some suggestion to fix this issue(we don't lost data)?

the failed regions are in "Regions in Transition" state. we tried to fix and repair the table by below command.

 

 

 

 

$ hbase hbck -fix <table>
$ hbase hbck -repair <table>

 

 

 

 

 

 

But failed, we got error like below:

Hello @WayneWang 

 

Thanks for using Cloudera Community. The issue being faced by your Team is a Table having 1 "Failed Region" i.e. 327a6ed6b00c95e63346f6d725147952. Your Team have tried HBCK fix & repair (As this is HBase v1.x), yet the issue persists. 

 

We can try the following Steps as well:

  • Restarting the Masters after running any HBCK fix Command
  • As RIT are maintained in ZNode, Try removing the RIT ZNode & restart the Master again. 
  • For the Region, Would request you to review the RegionServer (Wherein the Region is in FAILED State) & confirm the reasoning for the same as well.

Hello @WayneWang 

 

As we haven't received any further Update, We are closing the Post assuming the issue was handled by the Steps shared above [1]. In HBase v1.x, We have limited choices with HBase v2.x using a new AssignmentManager (Details in HBASE-12439), which would assist in managing the RIT without ZooKeeper involvement.

 

Thanks for using Cloudera Community.
