Cannot restart namenode: Failed to load an FSImage file


I have Cluster Express with 1 master role, 1 management role and 6 worker roles. My Namenode and Master showed not running and I cannot restart the Namenode. Error below:


2015-11-29 19:27:32,758 FATAL org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.namenode.NameNode: Exception in namenode join Failed to load an FSImage file!

I ssh'ed into the master role VM and tried to fix it manually:


hdfs namenode -recover

But it is still the same. Let me know where I should troubleshoot next. Thanks
