I was trying to install recently launched hdp-188.8.131.52-GA on windows 2012, one box installation. The installation was successful however I was unable to start the name node service. Following are the errors:
2013-08-14 07:07:08,419 INFO org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.common.Storage: Storage directory C:\hdp_data\hdfs\nn does not exist
2013-08-14 07:07:08,419 ERROR org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.namenode.FSNamesystem: FSNamesystem initialization failed.
org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.common.InconsistentFSStateException: Directory C:\hdp_data\hdfs\nn is in an inconsistent state: storage directory does not exist or is not accessible.
I manually tried creating the folder nn under the path but that did not help. The error I then received while trying to startup namenode service is that namenode needs to be formatted. I even tried that but it did not help.
Am I missing something grossly?
