      Description

      So I was trying to write some simple scripts to verify client connections to HBase using the shell and I noticed that the HBase shell always returns 0 even when it can't connect to an HBase server. I'm not sure if this is the best option. What would be neat is if you had some capability to run commands like

      hbase shell --command='disable table;\ndrop table;' and it would error out if any of the commands fail to succeed. echo "disable table" | hbase shell could continue to work as it does now.
