Re: HBase snapshot: 'Can't find hfile exception' when verifying snapshot
The online snapshot implementation in 0.94 does not guarantee that it will
succeed -- there are some unavoidable race conditions and the operation
will exit with an error message such as the one you posted.

The 0.95 versions should be more robust since table locks were introduced.
