Re: Sparktask execution error

As far as the SparkTask goes, the return code 3 may indicate _any/all_ exception caught during job closure [1]. The potential scenarios for this are numerous and cannot be narrowed down with just this message.

The true exception with all its details should be printed on the target server logs (HiveServer2 logs) your JDBC is connecting to. I'd recommend beginning your investigation from there.
