Hive meta store fails to start with MetaException column does not exist

I see this exception for a range of tables and columns:

Re: Hive meta store fails to start with MetaException column does not exist

Is TPOW_OPT1TPRICE a column in one of your tables? It's certainly not a column in the HMS. When do you get this error about TPOW_OPT1TPRICE and does it fail the query?

 

Cheers,

Re: Hive meta store fails to start with MetaException column does not exist

Brock,

 

Thank you for your reply.  Yes this is one of our columns.  The failure occurs when the hive metastore starts.  We see these stack traces for lots of columns that we have added (possibly even all of them).  If we try and exectue a query again this table we get a broken pipe unable to connect to metastore exception.  Hue also fails when trying to browse metadata.

I think this might be https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-9620 which is caused for avro tables and a case difference on column names.

Hi Brock - thanks for your reply.  I had previously solved the problem, but yes this was the issue.
