Hive query on prem writing to S3 fails bc of return code 1 from org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.MoveTask

Guru

Issue

Issue I am having is this here, but setting the two configs are not working for me (seems it works for some and not others) https://forums.aws.amazon.com/message.jspa?messageID=768332

Below is full description

Goal:

I am writing this test query with small data size to output results to S3.

INSERT OVERWRITE DIRECTORY 's3a://demo/'
ROW FORMAT DELIMITED
FIELDS TERMINATED BY ','
STORED AS TEXTFILE
select * from demo_table;

Notes:

  • This query runs when outputted to HDFS directory.
  • I can create an external table locally against s3 remotely.. so my configurations are working (CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE ... LOCATION 's3a://demo/'; works)
  • Only when outputing a query to s3 do I get a failure (below)

Error:

The error when attempting the query to output to S3 is:

Additional note:

The query writes the tmp files to 's3a://demo/' but then fails with the above error. Tmp files look like

Am I missing a config to set, or something like that?

Greg,

See if you can write to folder inside the bucket rather than directly writing into root level bucket.

INSERT OVERWRITE DIRECTORY 's3a://demo/testdata' ROW FORMAT DELIMITED FIELDS TERMINATED BY ',' STORED AS TEXTFILE select*from demo_table;

Thanks @Sreekanth Munigati .. that worked!

s3a://demo/ does not work

s3a://demo/folder does!

let's just say there's "ambiguity" about how root directories are treated in object stores and filesystems, and rename() is a key troublespot everywhere. It's known there are quirks here, but as normal s3/wasb/adl useage goes to subdirectories, nobody has ever sat down with HDFS to argue the subtleties of renaming something into the root directory
