Can you try starting your Standby Node manually and see what happens. Command can be found here:

In case you find any error in the Standby NN logs then please share the log & out file.

Hi Jay,

Its seems Standby Namenode is not in sync with Primay namenode.

Can I run this command, from secondary namenode.

hdfs namenode -bootstrapStandby -force

Can you kindly tell me what impact it will cause?
