I have 4/5 left in the quorum. So this is not a majority issue.
Also already running services keep running fine for many hours (so this is not an issue with the new leader either). It seems like the HBase client code, when trying to lookup the zookeeper quorum to connect to, is not able to handle the NoRouteToHostException and errors out there itself (does not try retrying other zookeeper servers because of the unhandled exception).

How many servers were left in the quorum ? Was the new leader elected
properly afterwards ?
