Hive meta store fails to start with MetaException column does not exist

New Contributor

I see this exception for a range of tables and columns:

Any help or suggestions would be hugely appreciated.

I think this might be https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-9620 which is caused for avro tables and a case difference on column names.

Forgot to mention, running CDH 5.3, Impala 2.1.0

Is TPOW_OPT1TPRICE a column in one of your tables? It's certainly not a column in the HMS. When do you get this error about TPOW_OPT1TPRICE and does it fail the query?

 

Cheers,

Brock,

 

Thank you for your reply.  Yes this is one of our columns.  The failure occurs when the hive metastore starts.  We see these stack traces for lots of columns that we have added (possibly even all of them).  If we try and exectue a query again this table we get a broken pipe unable to connect to metastore exception.  Hue also fails when trying to browse metadata.

Hi Brock - thanks for your reply.  I had previously solved the problem, but yes this was the issue.
