It stoped and when trying restart service cloudera-scm-server started. But service cloudera-scm-server-db not able to START

 

# service cloudera-scm-server-db start

 

Its showing as 

DB initialization done.
waiting for server to start...............................................................could not start server

Could you please help me on this, due to this I am unable to start Cloudera Manager.

 

Thanks in Advance.

Thanks Michalis.

 

It resolved now, I have contact Cloudera Support on this. It happened due to Space issue on /Var/ directory. its used 100%. 

 

Once I cleaned up few log files, I can able to start cloudera-scm-server-db service.
