The Grid Service Agent failed to start the ZooKeeper instance, but succeeded on its next attempt. The failure was caused by a file system error trying to create the directory structure for the snapshot data and logs of the ZooKeeper server.
For example, the following message appears in the manager logs:
"Failed to run Zookeeper instance; Caused by: java.io.IOException: Unable to create data directory /work/manager/zookeeper/log/version-2"
This does not always occur, and there have been reports of similar behavior by the ZooKeeper community. To avoid this issue, the XAP Manager now creates these directories beforehand with write access, or lets the Grid Service Agent succeed in creating the ZooKeeper server on its next attempt.
Create the directory manually with write access or let the Grid Service Agent succeed on its next attempt to create the ZooKeeper instance.
