HBase Connection Properties

HBase Connection Properties

Use an HBase connection to access HBase. The HBase connection is a NoSQL connection. You can create and manage an HBase connection in the Administrator tool or the Developer tool. HBase connection properties are case sensitive unless otherwise noted.
The following table describes HBase connection properties:
Property
Description
Name
The name of the connection. The name is not case sensitive and must be unique within the domain. You can change this property after you create the connection. The name cannot exceed 128 characters, contain spaces, or contain the following special characters:
~ ` ! $ % ^ & * ( ) - + = { [ } ] | \ : ; " ' < , > . ? /
ID
String that the Data Integration Service uses to identify the connection. The ID is not case sensitive. It must be 255 characters or less and must be unique in the domain. You cannot change this property after you create the connection. Default value is the connection name.
Description
The description of the connection. The description cannot exceed 4,000 characters.
Location
The domain where you want to create the connection.
Type
The connection type. Select HBase.
ZooKeeper Host(s)
Name of the machine that hosts the ZooKeeper server.
When the ZooKeeper runs in the replicated mode, specify a comma-separated list of servers in the ZooKeeper quorum servers. If the TCP connection to the server breaks, the client connects to a different server in the quorum.
ZooKeeper Port
Port number of the machine that hosts the ZooKeeper server.
If the Hadoop cluster uses MapR, use the value specified for hbase.zookeeper.property.clientPort in hbase-site.xml. You can find
hbase-site.xml
on the NameNode machine in the following directory:
/opt/mapr/hbase/hbase-0.98.7/conf
.
Enable Kerberos Connection
Enables the Informatica domain to communicate with the HBase master server or region server that uses Kerberos authentication.
HBase Master Principal
Service Principal Name (SPN) of the HBase master server. Enables the ZooKeeper server to communicate with an HBase master server that uses Kerberos authentication.
Enter a string in the following format:
hbase/<domain.name>@<YOUR-REALM>
Where:
  • domain.name is the domain name of the machine that hosts the HBase master server.
  • YOUR-REALM is the Kerberos realm.
HBase Region Server Principal
Service Principal Name (SPN) of the HBase region server. Enables the ZooKeeper server to communicate with an HBase region server that uses Kerberos authentication.
Enter a string in the following format:
hbase_rs/<domain.name>@<YOUR-REALM>
Where:
  • domain.name is the domain name of the machine that hosts the HBase master server.
  • YOUR-REALM is the Kerberos realm.
