Hi @Raja Ray

We are also getting the same issue when I try to fix the hbase issue using -fix .

we are getting error "ERROR: Table Namespace Manager not ready yet, try again later" while creating a hbase table

This issue is solved now . Thanks

how was the issue resolved?

could you please provide some information.


I am also getting the same issue and restarted zookeeper and then region server and then hbase master but issue didn't resolve.

Even I have deleted hbase znode but still issue is there.
