Decommission HBase RegionServers

Run the decommission commands on the RegionServer.

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

At the RegionServer that you want to decommission, run the following command:

/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.
