Subject Re: Backup data for a single hbase instance
Date Fri, 15 Jul 2011 16:57:59 GMT
Flush all tables before copying and if you can, suspend writes during
the copy (after the flush has finished -- watch logs for when its
finished).  After copying the data, try starting an hbase over it to
make sure your copy works.  Let us know if you run into issue.
