Re: Is there a graceful way to failover hbase master in CM?

Master Collaborator

You shouldn't have to disable the Master service at all.  If you have two HBase masters running (one Active, one Backup), simply stopping the service on the Active Master will trigger the Backup master to take over.  The graceful transition details are handled internally and very effectively by HBase itself.
