-Re: What are the appropriate steps before performing hardware maintenance?
You might want to take a look at bin/graceful_stop.sh . It will move
all the regions hosted by your RS to other RS before stopping it
gracefuly. After the maintenance, simply start the RS/DN back and it
will be added back to the cluster. Loadbalancer will then assign some
regions back to him. You will loose some data locality for the regions
wich are going to be moved.
