no master to stop because no pid file /var/run/hbase/hbase-hbase-master.pid

no master to stop because no pid file /var/run/hbase/hbase-hbase-master.pid

Explorer

hbase master.pid is not getting created, PID for other daemons is generated properly

ERROR: no master to stop because no pid file /var/run/hbase/hbase-hbase-master.pid

PID files for other hbase daemons:
hbase-hbase-regionserver.pid
hbase-hbase-rest.pid
hbase-hbase-thrift.pid
21391
21623
21955

When i run any command inside hbase shell it give error: Can't get master address from ZooKeeper; znode data == null
However I am able to open zookeeper-client shell/prompt.

Could you please tell me why hbase master pid file is not getting created?

Can I manually create it and put the PID inside? If Yes, what is the PID for hbase-master?

Thanks//Sandeep

Re: no master to stop because no pid file /var/run/hbase/hbase-hbase-master.pid

@Sandeep Ahuja, Do check if the master is running using "ps -ef | grep master" if no process, Do start the master from ambari and ambari should create the pid file along with the pid.
