Ambari shows HiveServer2 and Hive Metastore is stopped but they are running

Explorer

Ambari dashboard is showing HiveServer2 and Hive Metastore is stopped, but from the command line I am able to login into hive cli and hiveserver2 using beeline client also.

I have 6 node cluster in which I have installed hive server in 2 nodes and hive client is installed in all 6 nodes. In node1 ambari dashboard it was showing hiveserver2 and hive metastore is stopped but in node2 it was started.

In node1:

In node2:

6382-hive-node2.png

When checked the process id which was available in /var/run/hive/hive.pid and hive-server.pid, they are same.

[node1 ~]$ cd /var/run/hive
[node1.staging.iad hive]$ ls
hive.pid  hive-server.pid
[node1 hive]$ cat hive.pid
14037
[node1 hive]$ cat hive-server.pid
16654
[node1 hive]$ ps -ef| grep 14037

@sbhat Thanks for you reply.

My issue falls under scenario 2 in that article.

But my hive.pid permission are correct i.e

-rw-r--r-- 1 hive hadoop 6 Aug  4 19:48 hive.pid
-rw-r--r-- 1 hive hadoop 6 Aug  4 19:48 hive-server.pid

And also my procees id's i.e hive-server.pid is matching with the process id when checked using

ps -ef|grep hive

@Dinesh E

It looks the following services are all in maintenance mode.

Hive Server2
Hive-Metastore
HCat client
Hive Client

Please Turn Off Maintenance Mode and let me know if that worked

Hi Dinesh,

I had same issue in my env for few months back. In my scenario hive service had started with other user (manually). not with ambari user. kill the procees id and again start the service using ambari console resolved my issue.
