What is in different storage file?
All data-nodes should have different configuration files, and each configuration file
should set a different storage directory property: "dfs.data.dir"
It is not a file, it is directory with all data-blocks.

They do not SELF shut down. They are asked to shut down by the name-node
because there is a mismatch between previously registered ip address and storage ids.

According to the exception in your previous email, the data-node with ip address is trying to report a block on behalf of the node which is registered
under ip address
The funny thing is that their storage id DS-1812686469-
was created by yet another node

I can only guess that VMWare somehow changes ip addresses on the fly.
Try to run data-nodes on different ports: 50011-14, then at least you will know which one
is talking now.
