1. We need to know on which database Hive metastore is hosted like my SQL, Oracle?

2. What is the version of jdbc driver used for a database connection?


if Oracle then, we need to know which version it has by this command

unzip -p /usr/share/oracle-connector-java.jar | head > jar_version.txt

Right now we are using ojdbc8.jar.



  1. Using the following command, move the existing oracle-connector-java.jar from /usr/share/java/ to /tmp/
    mv /usr/share/java/oracle-connector-java.jar /tmp/
  2. Using the following command, copy the existing ojdbc8.jar as oracle-connector-java.jar
    cp /usr/share/java/ojdbc8.jar oracle-connector-java.jar
  3. Using the following command, change the permissions to 775
    chmod 775 oracle-connector-java.jar
  4. Restart the Hive service
