Datanode not starting on name node server

    I have setup Hortonworks hadoop on 2 server. I have 2 data nodes one on each server. But the datanode on the server where my name node is running is failing to start. Any reason why ?

    Hi Rajendra,
    What error are you getting? Can you try starting datanode manually? You can do this by executing su – hdfs -c ‘/usr/lib/hadoop/sbin/hadoop-daemon.sh start datanode’
