In the example above the block file on the data node (big1hd06) might have been corrupted.

Check if there is a parameter "dfs.client.enable.read.from.local" in hdfs-client.xml. If yes, try change this parameter to "true". Just make the change on DataNode reporting the error and run query again. No need to restart DataNode

hdfs-client.xml typically locates under <HDB install dir>/etc
