@tauqeer khan

Are you able to launch "hive" shell ? Also, try launching something via Hive View on Ambari and see if you can get a full stack for the error, if persists.

Hello srai ,

We have HA thats why hive is still working.

Now the main concern is why are we getting the above mentioned error.What might be the main cause of it.
