Meta table is not Online

Champion Alumni

Hi every one,


I did some load testing on my hbase cluster based on cdh 4.6 .Data got inserted correctly on hbase tables and also indexed on solr as I  am using lily.How ever  when I try to ingest data now I am getting the  below exception and also not able to scan any tables.


Looks like clinet is not able to find meta table from zoo keeper location.Can some one help?
