  3. Log in to the node for which the alarm is generated as user root.
  4. View the $BIGDATA_LOG_HOME/nodeagent/scriptlog/checkfileconfig.log file and analyze the cause based on the error log. Locate the check standards of the file in the Related Information and manually check and modify the file based on the standards.

    Run the vi file name command to enter the editing mode, and then press Insert to start editing.

    After the modification is complete, press Esc to exit the editing mode and enter :wq to save the settings and exit.

    For example:

    vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config

  5. Wait a hour and check whether the alarm is cleared.

    • If yes, no further action is required.
    • If no, go to 6.

  • Check standards of /etc/fstab

    Check whether the partitions configured in the /etc/fstab file can be found in /proc/mounts.

    Check whether the swap partitions configured in fstab correspond to those in /proc/swaps.
