How to connect to hbase shell when hdfs cluster edge node and Hbase edge node are different?

New Contributor


@Nilesh Saini, Can you please clarify your question? Do you mean to find out a way to access Hbase shell if Hdfs and Hbase is installed on different nodes ?

Separate Hbase edge node is created which is different from HDFS edge node. hbase-client are not accessible from HDFS edge node and data nodes. hbase-client is accessible from Hbase edge node.


@Nilesh Saini, In typical scenario, user should install hbase-client on HDFS edge node. Copy over Hbase configurations from Hbase edge node to HDFS edge node. ( copy them to /etc/hbase/conf)

This way, you should be able to access Hbase-shell from HDFS edge node.

If for some reason you can not install hbase-client on HDFS edge node, you will need to run all the Hbase command using remote session like ssh.

ssh <hbase node> "<hbase shell commands>"
