Re: Can not ALTER or DROP a big partitionned tables - CAUSED BY: MetaException: Timeout when executi

Hi Vibin,

 

I can see that this issue is tracked under HIVE-6980 on the upstream JIRA. And I can confirm that it has been fixed in CDH6.1 and CDH5.16 onwards.

 

If you are using older version, you can try to increase the value for hive.metastore.client.socket.timeout as a workaround as mentioned in the previous post.

 

Hope above is helpful.

 

Cheers
