Nice Sujee.  Make a patch for the reference guide so folks can find it
easy?  Add a footnote here: http://hbase.apache.org/book.html#dns?
(If you write text into an issue, I'll take care of getting it into
the guide).  Shouldn't we have this in hbase altogether?

./bin/hbase checkdns

or ./bin/hbck --checkdns

(Hopefully the reverse dns is no longer necessary in 0.92)
