I would like to rename the existing hbase column family. I have tried using the alter delete and create where the data in the old column family got deleted. Is there any way where we can rename the coulmn family.
@Josh Elser Could you please let me know what do you mean by "rewrite the data with the new column family"? You mean to create a new table and copy the current hbase data to new hbase table and drop the old table?
