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.
