If we try to start vertica from adminTools, option 5, restart vertica on host, it just returns to screen and nothing happens.
If we then try using the cmd line force option:
./admintools -t restart_node -F -s IP-of-node -d drdata
We get an error:
Info: no password specified, using none
*** Restarting nodes for database drdata ***

Re-enable the dradmin OS account and make sure it has a working password.
Make sure that passwordless ssh is enabled and working for the dradmin OS user to the local node and ALL other nodes in the vertica cluster.
