Decommission HBase RegionServers

Use the following instruction to decommission HBase RegionServers in your cluster.

At the RegionServer that you want to decommission, execute:

/usr/hdp/current/hbase-client/bin/ stop

where <HBASE_USER> is the user who owns the HBase Services. For example, hbase.

RegionServer closes all the regions, then shuts down.
