PROBLEM: While creating an external Hive table using Hive Storage Handler for Phoenix, the table creation fails if schema name is added along with Phoenix table name.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:

1. Hive DDL for the table:

create external table test.hive_e_phoenix1 (
scd string,
scddesc string
)
STORED BY 'org.apache.phoenix.hive.PhoenixStorageHandler'
TBLPROPERTIES (
'phoenix.table.name'='myschema.mytbl',
'phoenix.zookeeper.quorum'='node1,node2,node3',
'phoenix.rowkeys'='scd'
);

2. Following exceptions are seen.

ROOT CAUSE: This is a known issue with Phoenix 4.8 discussed in Apache JIRA PHOENIX-3078

SOLUTION : Please log a case with HWX and request for a hotfix for HDP 2.5 backported from HDP 2.6

I was facing same kind of issue. I have resolve this issue by using following steps:-

1) Edit Ambari->Hive->Configs->Advanced->Custom hive-site->Add Property..., add the following properties based on your HBase configurations(you can search in Ambari->HBase->Configs): custom hive-site.xml

hbase.zookeeper.quorum=xyz (find this property value from hbase )

zookeeper.znode.parent=/hbase-unsecure (find this property value from hbase )

phoenix.schema.mapSystemTablesToNamespace=true

phoenix.schema.isNamespaceMappingEnabled=true

2) Copy jar to /usr/hdp/current/hive-server2/auxlib from

/usr/hdp/2.5.6.0-40/phoenix/phoenix-4.7.0.2.5.6.0-40-hive.jar

/usr/hdp/2.5.6.0-40/phoenix/phoenix-hive-4.7.0.2.5.6.0-40-sources.jar If he jar is not working for you then just try to get following jar phoenix-hive-4.7.0.2.5.3.0-37.jar and copy this to /usr/hdp/current/hive-server2/auxlib

3) add property to custom-hive-env

HIVE_AUX_JARS_PATH=/usr/hdp/current/hive-server2/auxlib/4) Add follwoing property to custom-hbase-site.xmlphoenix.schema.mapSystemTablesToNamespace=true phoenix.schema.isNamespaceMappingEnabled=true

5) Also run following command

1) jar uf /usr/hdp/current/hive-server2/auxlib/phoenix-4.7.0.2.5.6.0-40-client.jar /etc/hive/conf/hive-site.xml

2) jar uf /usr/hdp/current/hive-server2/auxlib/phoenix-4.7.0.2.5.6.0-40-client.jar /etc/hbase/conf/hbase-site.xml

And I hope my solution will work for you :)
