> this is the null pointer exception you get when using 0.17 to distcp.
> i was running using hod 
> with hadoop --config hoddir distcp .....................
> After investigating further with help from chris, we found out that it is using conf.getStrings
which does not have a default. Also, hadoop default conf directory is not added to the classpath
 when we run bin/hadoop on the client side. 
> On copying hadoop-default.xml to my config directory it worked fine. 
> we can add hadoop default conf directory to the classpath? or  use a default in the call
for conf.getStrings("io.serializations")?
> I am marking this as a blocker for someone to take a look.
