Pleas emake sure that all the cluster nodes has correct FQDN configured. All the hosts are returning the correct FQDN (hostname) when we run the following command:

# hostname -f

.

Try starting the NameNode manually to see if it works ? As mentioned here: https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.6.2/bk_administration/content/starting_hdp_serv...

Can you do the following as user root

# su - hdfs

Now as user hdfs

$ hdfs dfsadmin -safemode leave

Then restart through Ambari

Did you check the connectivity from Ambari Server to Namenode service?

@Kishore Kumar

Can you check the /etc/hosts on the cluster nodes and make sure the entries are like

IP:FQDN : short-name optional

And the FQDN on each host should be the exact output of

# hostname -f
