Datanode starts but doesn't connect to namenode

Explorer

I installed a 2 node hadoop cluster. The master and slave node starts separately but the datanode isn't shown in namenode webUI. The log file for datanode shows the following error :

	2016-02-09 23:30:53,920 INFO org.apache.hadoop.ipc.Server: IPC Server Responder: starting

</configuration>

Kindly help with this issue.

thanks everyone..solved the problem. Actually the namenode was listening at localhost:9000 and datanode tried to connect at hadoop-master:9000, hence the error in connectivity. Changed the listening IP:port of namenode to hadoop-master:9000.

Is there connectivity between the servers?

WARN org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.datanode.DataNode:Problem connecting to server: hadoop-master/172.17.25.5:9000

Please make sure that ssh works and iptable is off

turn off ipv6 in /etc/hosts.

1. To add on to Artem's idea.

Disable IPv6 Temporarily 'echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/<interface-name>/disable_ipv6'

eg 'echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/eth0/disable_ipv6'

Disable IPv6 Permanently across reboots

Edit the /etc/sysctl.conf and the following lines.

# to disable IPv6 on all interfaces system wide net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1

# to disable IPv6 on a specific interface (e.g., eth0, lo)

net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6 = 1

net.ipv6.conf.eth0.disable_ipv6 = 1

2. Check the NTP server configuration or just restart NTP on both servers

turn off ipv6 in /etc/sysconfig/network or /etc/sysconfif/network-manager/ifcfg-eth0

parameter

NETWORKING_IPV6=no

IPV6INIT=no

Please check selniux is disable or not if not then disable it and reboot.

vi /etc/sysconfig/selinux

selinux=disabled

Also check ntp and iptable and firewall.

I am facing the same issue. Could you please guide me how did you solve the problem. I am not able to get a clue from the answer.

New Contributor

Would you please tell us how did you change localhost:9000 to master:9000. in core-site it is addressing master:9000. Why it picks 127.0.0.1? Which file I should make changes?

New Contributor

Solution worked for me -> firewall was the reason on 64bit Ubunu 16.04 "sudo ufw allow 9000" changes the rules, then namenode listens with master:9000

New Contributor

You can check the ports with netstat -anp | grep 9000 before and after the change in the ufw
