Cluster not Starting

  • #20540

    When I start HDInsigh Dashboard I get the message “Waiting for your cluster to start up!” and hangs. Apache Hadoop namenode Service is stopped and in the log I get following message

    Hi Sundararaj,

    Is this an HDinsights cluster? or and HDP on windows cluster? if the former you really need to go to the link that Seth gave in his post.

    Thanks,
    Ted.
