@Michael Sobelman That DNS is not detectable by the node you are trying to access from. You can be fancy on aws and configure through routing tables by setting up a proper vpn between the EMR and NiFi nodes. Another option I used is route53 which will give you DNS publicly available. Lastly you can put a ELB infront of your EMR HBase master node. You may have to script it up (via boot scripts) to configure your ELB to point to new internal IP.
