Re: Data Node Not Starting

Even if the path is right, check the permissions. Typically the hdfs user should be the owner the group should be hadoop for the data directory:

chown -R hdfs /path-to-your-datanode-data-dir

chgrp -R hadoop /path-to-your-datanode-data-dir

chmod 750 /path-to-your-datanode-data-dir
