Following the CDH5 installation guide, I get the following error:
[root@ronin ~]# service hbase-regionserver start Starting Hadoop HBase regionserver daemon: starting regionserver, logging to /var/log/hbase/hbase-hbase-regionserver-ronin.kwttestdc.local.out ERROR.
However, I cannot find a way to debug the error in order to work out why it's failing (The error message itself is useless).
Could anyone shed some light on how to further troubleshoot/debug this , or recommend a fix if this has been encountered before ?
Are you able to look into the region server log mentioned in your note? That would be the first thing I'd check. Paste the relevant log section here or upload it to pastebin
