I'm using HDP 2.5, not the sandbox but rather the Ambari installation on 7 VMs (3 master, 3 data, 1 edge).
Ambari views seems to be working, except I can't delete Hive views. I'll use the Tez view as a baseline. I click on "Views" and expand "TEZ" then select "Tez View":
I click "Delete Instance" and get the confirmation screen:
I click "OK" and it deletes the view.
Now, onto Hive. When I click on "OK" in the deletion confirmation screen I get this:
Clicking "more" doesn't provide much detail:
It doesn't matter if it's the default Hive view or one I created myself, and now I'm stuck seeing 3 Hive views (I created a third to see if I could delete it).
This is a bug: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMBARI-18387
Fixed in Ambari 2.5
View solution in original post
@James (JP) Poriz What error do you see in the /var/log/ambari-server/ambari-server.log immediately when you try deleting those view.
I am using 2.5 and still getting the same error when I try to delete the auto generated Hive View Instance. Does this patch work? How do I patch Ambari? Is there a way to manually remove the instance outside of Ambari (ie through the terminal)?
Thank you in advance.
