Subject Re: ROOT region not assigned

Hi St.Ack,

removing the zookeeper data dir did the trick. The master stopped again 
after complaining that it couldn't resolve the old node name (which I 
was only able to grep under the dfs data - any idea why the master host 
name is persisted there and read again?) but defining that as a 
localhost alias in /etc/hosts also fixed that and as far as I can tell 
all data is accessible again.

Thanks a lot!!!

Will put that into our troubleshooting guide right away.

Is there further implications of deleting the zookeeper data dir? And 
once we are at it, is there some general information on what to do if 
you need to rename nodes (in particular master nodes)?

Thanks again!
