This is an error that I faced a while ago and I made a blog entry to be publised some day, so here it goes.

When setting up an installation and if not everything goes well, we might face the situation of datanode/namenode desyncrhonization. You should immediately refer to the logs. There you can see the following message:
 ... ERROR org.apache.hadoop.dfs.DataNode: java.io.IOException: Incompatible namespaceIDs in /app/hadoop/tmp/dfs/data: namenode namespaceID = 308967713; datanode namespaceID = 113030094
