    I am trying to install HDP. Initially I tried to install using Ambari but I was getting an error:
    Could not access base URL

    I then tried to install manually but at section 4.1 in the install guide, Format and Start HDFS, when I try and start the namenode I get the following error:

    2014-04-16 15:27:42,429 INFO [main] impl.MetricsSystemImpl ( – NameNode metrics system started
    2014-04-16 15:27:43,353 FATAL [main] namenode.NameNode ( – Exception in namenode join

    I have currently set-up the server on one machine, and have set the namenode abd secondarynamenode to be the same machine in hdfs-site.xml

    Any help gratefully received.

    Make sure you have set the HADOOP_PREFIX variable correctly as indicated in the link:

    Even i faced the same issue as yours and it got rectified by setting this variable
