BDR Throwing Error : Hive Table does not match version in metastore.

BDR Throwing Error : Hive Table does not match version in metastore.

Explorer

Hi All,

 

I am facing an issue in BDR.

BDR is configured with a hive replication and it fails in the third step(Importing metadata)

 

The error message, that I received was "<table name> Table does not match version in metastore."

 

What could be the problem here?

 

Thanks in advance

Re: BDR Throwing Error : Hive Table does not match version in metastore.

This error likely occurs because the target hive service already has a version of that table, but with different metadata properties. In order to overwrite it, check/select the "Force Overwrite" option in the hive replication schedule.

 

How many times do you see this and how many tables are having this error?

Please read this document as well, the item regarding "Hive replication fails if "Force Overwrite" is not set."

I got the same issue and resolved with using the "Force Overwrite" while Hive replication setup
