Was this data node part of a another DFS cluster at some point? It looks 
like you've reformatted the name node since the datanode connected to 
it. The datanode will refuse to connect to a namenode with a different 
namespaceId because the the data node would have blocks (possibly with 
the same ids) from another cluster. It's a stop gap safety mechanism. 
You'd have to destroy the data directory on the data node to 
"reinitialize" it so it picks up the new namespaceId from the name node 
at which point it will be allowed to connect.

Just to be clear, this will also kill all data that was stored on the 
data node, so don't do this lightly.
