I have run into an issue using HBase completebulkload. The first issue is that it does not seem to properly find zookeeper. I believe this is somewhat related to HBASE-3714 which does not look like it is incorporated in the included version of HBase ( hbase-0.90.2 ).
I can somewhat work around the issue ( as we worked around it in CDH3U0 ) by setting the zookeeper paramters on the command line. The bulk load works and loads a few of the files, but fails with the following (santized) exception:
java.io.IOException: java.io.IOException: Failed rename of maprfs://x.x.x.x:7222/src to maprfs://y.y.y.y:7222/hbase/dest
at sun.reflect.GeneratedMethodAccessor11.invoke(Unknown Source)
I guess my question is has anyone had success with completebulkload?
