           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 ?




    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}'
