Hi All,

 

I am using cloudera 4.3.0. (System Config:-iIntel i3 Processor with 8GB RAM)Trying to create a Partitioning in Hive. Below is the detail:-

 

CREATE TABLE partitioned_user(
firstname VARCHAR(64),
lastname VARCHAR(64),
address STRING,
city VARCHAR(64),
post STRING,
phone1 VARCHAR(64),
phone2 STRING,
email STRING,
web STRING
)
PARTITIONED BY (country VARCHAR(64), state VARCHAR(64))
STORED AS SEQUENCEFILE;

 

But getting error as "FAILED: ParseException line 2:10 cannot recognize input near 'VARCHAR' '(' '64' in column type".

 

Can anyone please assist.

 

Thank You.

Following up on this. I can confirm that the Launch Cloudera Manager icon has been replaced with icons to lauch Cloudera express or the Cloudera Enterprise trial. The team is working to update the wording on the download page to reflect this. Sorry for the confusion.

Probably your version of hive is old. Check below.

Varchar datatype was introduced in Hive 0.12.0 (HIVE-4844).

Hi Kushal,

 

Thanks for the response.

 

I am using Hadoop 2.0.0-CDH4.3.0. So it should work (Please check https://hive.apache.org/downloads.html)

 

Is there any other possible reason ?

Re: Hive Partitioning

As mentioned before Hive version 0.12 ships varchar datatype, based on your cdh4.3.0 it looks like hive version is 0.10 (ref: https://archive.cloudera.com/cdh4/cdh/4/hive-0.10.0-cdh4.3.0.releasenotes.html )

Re: Hive Partitioning

SInce you have mentioned that you are using CDH4.3.0  - it ships with  hive-0.10.0+121

please refer the link

VARCHAR can be used with CDH 5.2 and higher (i,e Hive 0.12.0)

Thanks for the response.

 

I tried to add CDH 5.10 with VMware player. But the Cloudera Manger icon is missing. Could you please advice.

I believe the "Launch Cloudera Manager" icon has been replaced with a "Launch Cloudera Express" icon. I'm checking with my contacts to confirm and get the QuickStart VM download page updated with the new wording if needed.

Hello Jervis,

 

Thanks for the response. 

 

So currently is it fine to use CDH 5.10 without getting Cloudera Manager ?

 

I have already downloaded CDH 5.10. So is it required to download it again once the update about the wording will be done or it will auto-reflect the Cloudera Manager ?
