RE: Regionservers not connecting to master
Can you try like start any of the regionservers that are not connecting at
all.  May be start 2 of them.
Observer master logs.  See whether it says
'Waiting for RegionServers to checkin'?.  

Just to confirm your ZK ip and port is correct thro out the cluster? If
multitenant cluster then you may be the other regionservers are connecting
to someother ZK cluster?
Wild guess :)
