I'm not sure what could be happening with the IP address, but hopefully someone else can chime in.

For the configuration issue: First make sure that 'flume.master.store' is set to 'zookeeper'. If so, then 'flume.master.zk.logdir' should be storing the configurations.

Do you mean the value of " flume.master.zk.logdir " ?
