we are testing HIve 2.1.1 of Cloudera 6.0.1 , but we are getting unexpected behaviours.
In particular with some datatype we are getting error:
from org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.DDLTask. java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: Parquet does not support date. See HIVE-6384
By the way the issue HIVE-6384 is resolved from Hive 1.2 ( HIVE-6384 )
To replicate the problem, for example :
create table testdate (part int ,a date )STORED AS PARQUET;
We try this in 2 clusters both upgraded from 5.X .
Thank you in advance
Hive-6384 is not included as part of any CDH5/CDH6 release, We do have an internal feature request JIRA available to track the back porting of HIVE-6384 in a future CDH releases.
Currently the workaround is to use a STRING datatype or the TIMESTAMP  datatype instead of the DATE datatype.
