Hive Fails to start

[ Edited ]

Hello Community,

 

I've been trying to execute the next step in the documentation.

 

https://www.cloudera.com/documentation/enterprise/5-12-x/topics/sg_hdfs_sentry_sync.html

 

I have done every step on Enabling the HDFS-Sentry Plugin Using Cloudera Manager and stepped into an error on starting HDFS Service that HDFS didn't find Sentry Plugin Class, that got solved by executing

 

# yum install sentry-hdfs-plugin

I managed, then, to start HDFS Service, but then Hive Metastore Server stopped with the next error.

 

[main]: Metastore Thrift Server threw an exception...
MetaException(message:Failed to instantiate listener named: org.apache.sentry.binding.metastore.SentryMetastorePostEventListener, reason: java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: Class org.apache.sentry.hdfs.MetastorePlugin not found)
	at org.apache.hadoop.hive.metastore.MetaStoreUtils.getMetaStoreListeners(MetaStoreUtils.java:1514)

	at org.apache.hadoop.util.RunJar.run(RunJar.java:221)
	at org.apache.hadoop.util.RunJar.main(RunJar.java:136)

I was looking for some answer as it seems to be an easy problem, but I found nothing related so I think it will be interesting to have it here to help others.

 

Now I am working with Cloudera Trial Enterprise Virtual Machine, before passing this to our production environment with more hosts, so I am trying to prevent most of the errors here before passing to the new scenario.

 

Thank you

Re: Hive Fails to start

I am having the same issue, but it did not start until I upgraded to 5.13.  It was working fine in 5.12...

Re: Hive Fails to start

The problem is /org/apache/sentry/hdfs/MetastorePlugin.class is missing from sentry-hdfs-1.5.1-cdh5.13.1.jar.  I replaced the jar with the one from sentry-hdfs-plugin-1.5.1+cdh5.12.2+344-1.cdh5.12.2.p0.5.el7.noarch.rpm and it seems to work.  Not sure if anyone from Cloudera monitors these posts but this looks like a bug in the 13.x release (rpm at least, maybe parcels are ok).

Re: Hive Fails to start

@leary Do you know where the jar is placed in a 5.12.2 installation?

 

Thank you

Re: Hive Fails to start

Should be in /usr/lib/sentry/lib/plugins

Re: Hive Fails to start

Didn't find there.

 

Do you know where I can download the RPM you mentioned?

 

Thank you
