    I currently have a configuration problem. Rather than blowing everything away. I am trying to resolve the problem. It would seem that the file: /etc/hadoop/conf/ log4j.properties gets regenerated on the fly. If I delete it or edit it and make a change, it goes back to the way it way. My current problem is that the MapReduce jobtracker (main) looks to log4j.properties to point to the correct postgres db. It keeps pointing to localhost and not the host that ha the database. Where does this file get generated from? Does anyone know?

    Hi Trevor,

    Please make sure that Ambari server has hostname setup correctly. Please check with hostname and hostname -f command on the ambari server.

    Hope this helps,
