I am able to find the solution, I was running Ranger admin on host1 and Hiveserver on host2 and i created the admin OS account in host1 but not in host2(where hive server is running). Creating the admin account and its group (hdpmasters) in host2 resolved this issue. I guess Ambari views might need the OS account/ Group to be present on the server where the service(being accessed by view) is installed.

You are getting followine error , other errors might be the side effect of this.

Causedby: org.apache.hadoop.ipc.RemoteException(org.apache.hadoop.security.authorize.AuthorizationException):Unauthorized connection forsuper-user: root from IP XXXXXXXXX

So please Gor o HDFS--> Configs --> Advanced --> Custom core-site and add the following property:

hadoop.proxyuser.root.hosts=*

The restart the required services and then try accessing the view again

.

In the above parameter either you need to specify Comma separated list of All the DataNode Hostnames including Ambari Server host name ... or else you can define *

Will the below findings help,

If i add admin user instead of its group hdpmasters in the Ranger hive policy. Both of the errors are not being shown anymore in the Hive view. The problem is only if i use its group 'hdpmasters' in the policy. Please find below

[ec2-user@XXXXXXX ~]$ hdfs dfs -ls /user

Found 9 items drwxr-xr-x - admin

hdpmasters 0 2017-08-11 07:02 /user/admin

[ec2-user@XXXXXX ~]$

id admin uid=1012(admin) gid=1012(admin) groups=1012(admin),1001(hdpmasters)

Why it is only working if i give 'admin' directly but not the group ?

Adding to my question, I have added admin OS account into a group 'hdpmasters' and i used this group while configuring Hive Ranger policy. If i use 'admin' instead of group in the policy configuration, strangely i am not able to see the error "FAILED:HiveAccessControlExceptionPermission denied: user [admin] does not have [USE] privilege on [null]" anymore(I can view the default database in Ambari view). Can i know why this is happening ?

@Chiranjeevi Nimmala, What is group permission on HDFS location for Hive where this hive table is stored ? 'hdpmasters' group should have permission of HDFS file system where hive table is stored.

See if below property is set.

webhcat.proxyuser.root.groups *

webhcat.proxyuser.root.hosts *

@Chiranjeevi Nimmala

Make the below changes in hive and restart all stale configuration

webhcat.proxyuser.root.groups *
webhcat.proxyuser.root.hosts *

See Ambari views documentation

Let me know if that helped
