    When i try running hbase in shell mode and execute commands, It throws the following error:

    hbase(main):001:0> status

    ERROR: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Not a host:port pair: ?xxxxx@<>,60000,<>

    Here is some help for this command:
    Show cluster status. Can be ‘summary’, ‘simple’, or ‘detailed’. The
    default is ‘summary’. Examples:

    hbase> status
    hbase> status ‘simple’
    hbase> status ‘summary’
    hbase> status ‘detailed’

    Hi V R,

    It appears that there may be a mis-configuration somewhere in your config files, Can you provide us the following information?
    1.) server (zookeeper host) names from zoo.cfg file.
    2.) hbase.rootdir from hbase-site.xml file.
    3.) hbase.master.info.bindAddress from hbase-site.xml file.
    4.) hbase.zookeeper.quorum from hbase-site.xml file.
    5.) Portion of the HBase log when you runs this command.
