I've noticed a number of user reports where jobs are failing with the error message "Unable
to find registrar for hdfs":

This isn't too many reports, but it is the only time I can recall so many users reporting
the same error message in a such a short amount of time. 

We believe the problem is one of two things: 
1) bad uber jar creation
2) incorrect HDFS configuration

However, it's highly possible this could have some other root cause. 

It seems like it'd be useful to:
1) Follow up with the above reports to see if they've resolved the issue, and if so what fixed
it. There may be another root cause out there.
2) Improve the error message to include more information about how to resolve it
3) See if we can improve detection of the error cases to give more specific information (specifically,
if HDFS is miconfigured, can we detect that somehow and tell the user exactly that?)
