Hadoop: Slave nodes are not starting

view story

http://serverfault.com – I am trying to setup a Pseudo Distributed Hadoop Cluster on my machine. Env Details : Host OS: Windows Guest OS: Ubuntu Vm's Created one master and one slave. I was able to run the hadoop wordcount successfully on single node cluster But when i tried to add the slave, the datanode, jobtracker, namenode and secondary namenode starts fine in the Master but no data node starts in the slave. I am able to ping the slave and login to the slave using ssh from my master. /etc/host file contains the correct entries in both vm's I am using NAT and Host only Adapter to get a static ip for the VM's (HowTos)
