      Description

      ActiveStandbyElector can store null at ActiveBreadCrumb in the below race condition. At further all failovers will fail resulting NPE.

      1. ZKFC restarted.
      2. due to machine busy, first zk connection is expired even before the health monitoring returned the status.
      3. On re-establishment transitionToActive will be called, at this time appData will be null,
      4. So now ActiveBreadCrumb will have null.
      5. After this any failovers will fail throwing

      java.lang.NullPointerException
      	at org.apache.hadoop.util.StringUtils.byteToHexString(StringUtils.java:171)
      	at org.apache.hadoop.ha.ActiveStandbyElector.fenceOldActive(ActiveStandbyElector.java:892)

      	at org.apache.zookeeper.ClientCnxn$EventThread.run(ClientCnxn.java:497)

      Should not join the election before service is HEALTHY
