EventCounter error in log4j properties - HDFS fails to start

Hi,

 

I have a 6-node Hadoop cluster set up and managed by Cloudera Manager 5. All 6 nodes + the server are ec2 instances. The cluster is all configured with no errors or warnings. HDFS consistently fails to start with this error:

 

log4j:ERROR Could not find value for key log4j.appender.EventCounter
log4j:ERROR Could not instantiate appender named "EventCounter".

 

I haven't found a way to work around this. Can someone please help?

Re: EventCounter error in log4j properties - HDFS fails to start

This log4j error is an ignorable one, stemming from a minor misconfiguration of the logger. It does not cause a crash.

Check the role log details or the stderr/stdout for the actual reasons of failures.
