ERROR: Found inconsistency in table HBase

We are using HBase 0.94.7 with two region servers. We have a region always in transition. When I do the hbase hbck, there are inconsistencies found. But neither hbase hbck -repair nor hbase hbck -fix would help because of this region in transition. Here is the log from hbase hbck

ERROR: Region { meta => LogTable,\x00\x00\x01\xE8\x00\x00\x01@\x07B\x02\xCF\xEF\xCE>.,1374573828457.f41ff2fae25d1dab3f16306f4f995369., hdfs => hdfs://master:8020/hbase/LogTable/f41ff2fae25d1dab3f16306f4f995369, deployed =>  } not deployed on any region server.

When I tried hbase hbck -repair, it loops infinitely because of the region in transition:

INFO util.HBaseFsckRepair: Region still in transition, waiting for it to become assigned: {NAME => 'LogTable'....}

I have no clue how to resolve this problem, can anyone help?



  1. try this:

    hbase org.apache.hadoop.hbase.util.Merge <br/>


    bin/hbase merge [table-name] region-1 region-2 
  2. 参考答案2
  3. This looks like you had a failed region split, see [HBASE-8052] ( for more details.

    This bug leaves references to parent regions that have been moved in HDFS. To fix, just delete the reference files listed in the HBCK output e.g. hadoop fs -rm hdfs://master:8020/hbase/LogTable/f41ff2fae25d1dab3f16306f4f995369/l/d9c7d33257ae406caf8d94277ff6d247.fbda7904cd1f0ac9583e04029a138487.

    Once the bad references are gone the region should be assigned automatically. You may have to do the assignment from the shell, in my experience though it only takes a minute or two for the region to get reassigned. Then run hbase hbck -fix again to confirm there are no other inconsistencies.
