Cleaning up Zookeeper store should resolve this. Its quick but not 100% safe. The right way is to launch Zk CLI and manually check and verify all HBase related nodes
By default, its under /HBASE_TMP_DIR/zookeeper or if you have specified it explicitly - check hbase.zookeeper.property.dataDir in hbase-site.xml

Subject: Region Server not starting
I had to change the IP address of a hbase region server in the cluster. After effecting the IP change, all services in cluster came up fine, but for the region server on this node.
Kindly advise how to solve this problem.
The log on the region server with the error portion is as below:
