NodeManager not starting even after fresh install

  • #57366

    Hi,
    So i got some problems with the NodeManager at one of my hosts. I deleted the host even formated it installed centos new etc so theres no old files.
    Even after that when i installed NodeManager for YARN on that host i get that message when i try to start it and i dont really get what it means and why its comming back even after deleting and readding the host ?
