Original topic: tiup cluster restart 无法启动tidb

| username: 末0_0想

[Test Environment] TiDB
[TiDB Version] v6.5.0
[Reproduction Path]
I need help with my TiDB. Using the following command, I cannot restart the TiDB service and get the following error:
tiup cluster restart zdww-tidb

[FATAL] [server.rs:512] ["lock /home/tidb/tidb-data/tikv-20160 failed, maybe another instance is using this directory."]

However, using the following command, I can restart the TiDB service:
tiup cluster start zdww-tidb -R tidb

How can I troubleshoot this?

I also want to ask about the following error in tiflash_tikv.log in TiFlash. Where can I modify this configuration path?

Has the address changed?

Have you modified the storage directories of your TiKV and TiFlash nodes?

The directory has been modified according to the practices in Using TiUP to Modify Cluster Directory | TiDB Community and 【SOP 系列 12】TiUP 修改集群 IP 、Port 和目录 - TiDB 的问答社区, but currently, TiFlash still cannot start, and I can’t find where the original directory path is still configured.

I also want to ask how to check these down nodes in the Services Port Status. There shouldn’t be any nodes that have crashed.
