I think it is broke that you can't do this. You should be able to do
./bin/hbase shell -Dhbase.zookeeper.quorum="xyz"
HBASE_OPTS="-Dhbase.zookeeper.quorum='xyz'" ./bin/hbase shell
RUBY_OPTS="-J-Dhbase.zookeeper.quorum='xyz'" ./bin/hbase shell
I thought at least the latter would work but it fails.
This is a failing that should be simple enough to fix. Want to file a noob
issue for it?
W/o it you have to do stuff like the trick Rob Mancusco suggests:
HBASE_CONF_DIR=/alternate/conf/dir ./bin/hbase shell
