A region server stopped (timeout after trying to connect local Zookeeper)
Hi,
Please help!!

HBase version: 0.94
ZooKeeper: 3.4.4

One of the regional servers stopped very quickly after HBASE is started:

### Check JPS after HBASE cluster was started, could find the HRegionServer process (*** there is no any ZooKeeper instance running in this server ***)
$ jps
24767 Jps
18418 TaskTracker
24678 HRegionServer
18156 DataNode

### Wait a while and checked JPS again,  HRegionServer process gone
$ jps
18418 TaskTracker
24784 Jps
18156 DataNode
### Here is the setting in hbase-site.xml ( enabled hbase.cluster.distributed, set up 3 ZooKeepers, timeout= 60000)
<property>
<name>hbase.cluster.distributed</name>
<value>true</value>
</property>

<property>
<name>hbase.ZooKeeper.quorum</name>
<value>m146,m145,m143</value>
</property>

<property>
<name>zookeeper.session.timeout</name>
<value>60000</value>
</property>
### hbase-env.sh also tells HBASE not to manage local instance of ZooKeeper
export HBASE_MANAGES_ZK=false
###This server can connect to the 3 ZooKeepers,
./zkCli.sh -server m145,m146,m143   ==>  [zk: m145,m146,m143(CONNECTED) 0]
### checked the hbase log file, found something odd,  seemed that it tried to connect local ZooKeeper

Please help!
QUESTION: Is it a bug and I need to check something else?  

Thanks
