Hive Write permission denied

Contributor

Hi,

When i try to create database in hive view, I got below log in hive notification box; I have already created/gave permission to user/admin using this doc. I did also permission to hdfs,hive. But i can't able to resolve this issue. I think after enabling ranger it doesn't work. Please tell me how to i resolve this issue

Hello @Varun R,

From the error stack, it seems that Ranger permission checker is not even getting invoked and it is falling back to 'hdfs-acl'. By following that doc, are you sure that you have changed the ownership of the directory '/user/admin' to 'admin:hadoop' as mentioned?

I can still see that the owner as "root:hdfs". This could be possible cause of the error. Please run this command to change the ownership correctly and check them again by listing all the files:

# hdfs dfs -chown -R admin:hadoop /user/admin

## Check the permisions - it should show admin:hadoop for all the files
# hdfs dfs -ls -R /user/admin/

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the response. Its worked!!!

@Varun R

Below error suggests that admin user does not have write permission on hdfs directory /user/admin/hive/jobs

Permission denied: user=admin, access=WRITE, inode="/user/admin/hive/jobs/hive-job-82-2017-04-21_10-02/query.hql":root:hdfs:drwxr-xr-x

Can you check if /user/admin is owned by admin user at hdfs level?

hdfs dfs -ls /user/admin

On the other hand you can also define policy in Ranger for user admin to have read, write and execute access recursively on /user/admin

below is example screenshot for the policy.

You should check your admin home directory ownership in HDFS (/user/admin/hive).

  • Causedby: org.apache.hadoop.security.AccessControlException:Permission denied: user=admin, access=WRITE, inode="/user/admin/hive/jobs/hive-job-82-2017-04-21_10-02/query.hql":root:hdfs:drwxr-xr-x

Following this above messages, you cannot write your home directory or query.hql file.

Check list hierarchically.

/user/admin

/user/admin/hive

/user/admin/hive/jobs

/user/admin/hive/jobs/hive-job-82-2017-04-21_10-02

/user/admin/hive/jobs/hive-job-82-2017-04-21_10-02/query.hql

If the file 'query.hql' only set the ownership like this root:hdfs, then you have to change ownership to admin:admin or admin:hdfs.

Hi @Varun R

From the above logs, I can see you are running the query from Ambari Views? If that is correct then you have to tweak the below changes :

Services > HDFS > Configs > Advanced core-site

hadoop.proxyuser.ambari.groups=*
hadoop.proxyuser.ambari.hosts=* 

Since you're using admin user, apply the below settings:

su - hdfs
hadoop fs -mkdir /user/admin
hadoop fs -chown admin:hadoop /user/admin

Cheers,

Ram

Thanks all for your responses. Once again i reassign ownership. It works!!!

## hdfs dfs -chown -R admin:hadoop /user/admin
