Hi Phoenix Users
So I have a somewhat baffling errors. I have create a view on the follwoing HBase Table:

create 'xx:yy', {NAME => 'columns', COMPRESSION => 'SNAPPY'} , {SPLITS => ['1', '2', '3', '4', '5', '6', '7', '8', '9', 'a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f'] }

So far this worked very well. But when I want to create an Index on this view I get the following error:

 create index crea_dat_load_idx on PADASA.SENDUNGSDACH_3M_SNAP (SND_SENDUNG_CREA_DAT);
Error: ERROR 601 (42P00): Syntax error. Encountered "columns" at line 1, column 104. (state=42P00,code=601)

When using !tables the index shows up as perpetually "building"


Does phoenix create some more SQL statements when a create index is executed? It seems the column family name is throwing it off somehow. Has anyone encountered this before?

Environment info:
CDH 5.9.0
Phoenix 4.7.0

All the best and thanks!
