ROOT CAUSE: It is a known issue:

RESOLUTION: It has been fixed in HDP 2.5.3, please refer section 'Upgrade' here:

WORKAROUND: This can be resolved by following below steps as a workaround:

1. Deactivate all running topologies.
2. Stop Storm service
3. Delete all states under zookeeper: -> /usr/hdp/current/zookeeper-client/bin/ (optionally in secure environment specify -server zk.server:port) -> rmr /storm 
4. Delete all states under the storm-local directory.  Please make sure to run this on all storm hosts: rm -rf <value of stormlocal.dir> 
5. Start storm service.
