Datanode doesn't start. Error: The path component: '/' in '/var/lib/hadoop-hdfs/dn_socket' has permissions 0777

After a successful fresh Installation of HDP 3.1.0 on a 2 node Ubuntu 18.0.4 instances, we were able to get all the services up and running.

But after a night off, Datanode doesn't start. Following is the error:

ERROR datanode.DataNode (DataNode.java:secureMain(2883)) - Exception in secureMain
java.io.IOException: The path component: '/' in '/var/lib/hadoop-hdfs/dn_socket' has permissions 0777 uid 0 and gid 0. It is not protected because it is world-writable. This might help: 'chmod o-w /'. For more information: https://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/SocketPathSecurity

I did check the socket file and it's parent directories, I don't see the 777 permission at any level. But still the error appears while starting the datanode.

Couldn't find any solution, so posted here for help. I have also uploaded the complete logs for the datanode.

Got the hint logs are exactly pointing the issue.

"ls -ld /" shows me it has 777 permission. Just removed the write permission for group and other users, my issue is solved.

All these while I only checked the permission for the subsequent folders after "/" but the problem lies with "/" itself.
