    When trying to start namenode through Ambari, I receive java errors. When I run namenode start from command line I get error below. I ran the hadoop namenode -format command and that seems to work but I continue to receive this error.

    Hi Dave,

    Our HDFS directory is local. We are going to try a re-install of the cluster because we’ve been modifying service accounts and other settings to try and fit this implementation into our environment with all of our compliance requirements. That may address this issue and others we’ve encountered. I’ll keep you posted. Thanks for your response. Regards Louie

    Hi Louis,

    Is your HDFS directory on a mount point or is it a local disk?
    What happens when you run the format command (as hdfs user)

    Thanks

    Dave
