    Adding snapshot of log file for error details


    I have the same problem on Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise, did you solve this issue?

    Hi Govind,

    Looks like system could not process zoo.cfg. Can you please check your zoo.cfg for any permission issues and make sure that your zookepeer host is listed in zoo.cfg?

    Hope this helps.
