humm…can you provided me with your config settings? and possible the last 1000 lines of your log file? To get a copy of the log file run the following command.

tail -f 1000 /var/log/cirtrusleaf.log

Also have you tried running it with the following command first to see if it gives you the same error?

/etc/init.d/citrusleaf start

i am having the same problem, did you find the solution to it ?

i got this error the very 1st time i tried to start the aerospike server. Hence i do not have a log file.

Have you tried starting the server as root or with the sudo command? A log file should have started up. The default location of the log file is only writable by root, so this may have been the problem.
