Enable replication on a specific table
You can enable HBase replication for a specific table on the source cluster.
To enable replication for a specific table on the source cluster, run the enable_table_replication <table> command from the HBase shell on a cluster where a peer has been configured.
Running enable_table_replication <table> does the following:
- Verifies that the table exists on the source cluster.
- If the table does not exist on the remote cluster, uses the peer configuration to duplicate the table schema, inclusing splits, on the remote cluster.
- Enables replication on that table.
