From zookeeper 3.5 and onwards, runFromConfig(QuorumPeerConfig config) method throws AdminServerException.
HBase uses runFromConfig in HQuorumPeer.java and hence needs to throw this exception as well.
I've created a patch to make HBase compatible with zookeeper-3.5.1-alpha. However, since zookeeper 3.5+ does not have a stable version yet, I don't think we should commit this patch. Instead, I suggest using this JIRA to track this issue. Once zookeeper releases stable version of 3.5+, I could create another patch to bump the zookeeper version in HBase trunk.
