Hive query error on partition table file not exists

I am seeing the below issues while i am trying to count(*) (doing a full table scan on a partitioned table)

 java.sql.SQLException: Error while processing statement: FAILED: Execution Error, return code 2 from org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.tez.TezTask.

I am not seeing the above partitioned files on HDFS. I am not able to figure out the reason and how to fix it

Hi Nikhil,

Can you perform any commands on that table? Perhaps try dropping the partition. It seems that the data was removed at some point on HDFS but the hive tables metadata still thinks those partitions exist

ALTER TABLE *tableName* drop if exists PARTITION(date_part="2018022313");

Yes Daniel we are deleting the process . I dropped the table and recreated , it works now Thanks.
