Re: How to clear hbase data in zookeeper

I have tried to use the 'big hammer' before, here are my steps (it is not recommended and you should have your HBase and ZK shut down first):

### shut down ZM and HBase
1) for each ZK node:
su // login as root
cp data/myid myid // backup existing myid file to ZooKeeper's home folder
rm data/* -Rf
rm dadalog/* -Rf
mkdir -p data
mkdir -p datalog
cp myid data/myid // restore the myid backup so no need to recreate myid again

2) for each ZK node:
(start ZK )

3) finally
(start HBase)

By clearing data and datalog, you should have a very clean ZooKeeper.
Hope these help and good luck.
