Beeline connection error

Beeline connection error


I am new in Hadoop. I have cloudera (pseudo mode) in my system and I have downloaded it in Virtual Box. I am unable to connect to Beeline. The error which I am getting:-

[cloudera@quickstart ~]$ beeline

2016-09-18 20:10:18,995 WARN [main] mapreduce.TableMapReduceUtil: The hbase-prefix-tree module jar containing PrefixTreeCodec is not present. Continuing without it. Beeline version 1.1.0-cdh5.7.0 by Apache Hive

beeline> show databases;

No current connection

beeline> !connect jdbc:hive2//hostname:10000 scan complete in 5ms scan complete in 6272ms No known driver to handle "jdbc:hive2//hostname:10000"


In this, I think I need to download the jdbc driver but while using sqoop with hive, I am able to use jdbc connection. Moreover can u please tell how I can check whether my server2 is running or not. I am working in VB cloudera, so i don't know how to download the things @ username

Please work with the Hortonworks Sandbox. You will find it easy to work with, including the beeline client and many tutorials to get a newcomer started.

  1. Download the Hortonworks Sandbox from here:
  2. Import it into Virtual Box and start it.
  3. Take a little bit of time to understand the sandbox:
  4. Follow the tutorial on Hive and beeline in sections 1 and 2 here:
