stack commented on HBASE-903:

For now, here is a workaround:

hbase(main):019:0> disable 'TestTable'
# HBaseAdmin has already been imported into the shell during startup and '@configuration' is the shells HBaseConfiguration instance.
hbase(main):010:0> admin = HBaseAdmin.new(@configuration)
# In my instance, only one table so can do index '0' of returned list
hbase(main):011:0> htd = admin.listTables()[0]
hbase(main):017:0> htd.setMaxFileSize(67108864)
hbase(main):018:0> admin.modifyTableMeta(Bytes.toBytes('TestTable'), htd)
hbase(main):019:0> enable 'TestTable'
[shell] Can't set table descriptor attributes when I alter a table

Key: HBASE-903

I wanted to set the compaction filesize attribute but no good:
hbase(main):005:0> alter 'TestTable', {MAX_FILESIZE => 67108864}
TypeError: can't convert Hash into String
