HBase >> mail # user >> Which server store the root and .meta. information?

Re: Which server store the root and .meta. information?
Thanks for your reply. If the -ROOT- and .META. tables are managed by
two RegionServer separately. What is the functionality of Master node?
It only assigns the Region node in the cluster? So, the client only
needs to contact with these two special RegionServer which contains
the -ROOT- and .META. tables. If the interaction model is like what I
said, the client will not contact with master node!  If I am wrong,
let me know.
