When there is an issue with a node failing to start during cluster deployment, it is usually due to incorrect configuration items or content. Go to the path /home/bigdata/tidb-deploy/tidb-4000/log on the machine, check the ERROR log to identify the relevant cause, and then make targeted adjustments.
