  • Hi,

     

     

           Can you run ps -ef|grep vertica from all nodes and share me the output

     Are your ip address the same ? on your virtual hosts ?

     

    What does your logs say ?

    /opt/vertica/log/adminTools.log

    /vertica/catalog/<db_name>/v_<db_name>_<node>_catalog/startup.log

     

    It might be very easy thing ! 95% of the times the logs will help you solve it.

     

     or wipeout all Vertica pids on all hosts

    ps -ef | grep vertica |grep -v grep |awk '{print "kill -9 "$2}'
