We have met with some problem setting up hbase cluster in one special
environment, as described below:
1) The output of "hostname -i" on hbase master node is 127.0.0.1, and we
don't have sudo rights to change hostname of the machine
2) The network interface we want hbase to use is virtual, with name like
"eth1:0", which cannot be recognized by the NetworkInterface#getByName
method, thus setting the "hbase.regionserver.dns.interface" to "eth1:0"
3) There's no reverse DNS setup in the environment
I noticed on the Reference Guide that "Both forward and reverse DNS
resolving must work in versions of HBase previous to 0.92.0", so I guess
there must have been some work-around in the env w/o reverse DNS, correct?
Are there any suggestions on how to setup the hbase cluster in this
environment? Thanks in advance, and look forward to your reply.
