Cannot detect ES Version

Cannot detect ES Version

New Contributor


I am creating a Cloudera CDH 6.1.2 Hive connection with Elasticsearch 7.9.3.


I am getting below error while selecting the data from the table.


Error: org.elasticsearch.hadoop.EsHadoopIllegalArgumentException: Cannot detect ES version - typically this happens if the network/Elasticsearch cluster is not accessible or when targeting a WAN/Cloud instance without the proper setting 'es.nodes.wan.only' (state=,code=0)


Hive Create Table contains following configuration:



'es.nodes'='http://<elasticsearch service in openshift URL>',
'es.port' = '',
'es.nodes.discovery' = 'true',
'es.nodes.resolve.hostname' = 'false',



Hive Aux Jars have already been inserted:


Configuration Location: HiveServer2 Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for hive-site.xml
Property Value: /opt/local/hive/es/es.jar


I have also inserted the elasticsearch-hadoop-hive-7.9.3.jar in:


curl http://<elasticsearch service in openshift URL>

Can someone help on this?
