> Yesterday at the Hadoop Summit, the "HADOOP" wireless network was using a pair of DNS
servers that couldn't resolve {{localhost.}}.  This prevented me from starting HBase as the
construction of the {{HMaster}} was failing with the following rather cryptic error:
> {code}

>         ... 8 more
> {code}
> The {{NullPointerException}} in {{getBindAddress}} comes from the following line of code:
> {code:java}
>     return this.address.getAddress().getHostAddress();
> {code}
> where {{getAddress()}} was returning {{null}}.
> I think the code should check for this case, log an appropriate error message (to point
whoever is going to troubleshoot the problem in the right direction), and throw something
else than an NPE.
