Impala -> Hive Metastore version compatibility

Impala -> Hive Metastore version compatibility

New Contributor

Hello. 

I have a

* Hive Metastore of latest release version (version 3.1.2) and

* Impala built from current master (4.0.0-SNAPSHOT RELEASE (build f07514add9956e676d99ae9cbca5855960a279f2))

* impala-shell on mac version v3.4.0-RELEASE (9f1c31c)

 

But when I try to use impala-shell to create database, i get:

 

default> create database mydb;
Query: create database mydb
ERROR: ImpalaRuntimeException: Error making 'createDatabase' RPC to Hive Metastore: 
CAUSED BY: TApplicationException: Invalid method name: 'get_database_req'

 

Is it because versions are incompatible? Which version of Hive Metastore is needed for the latest impala?

 

Thanks

Can anyone help? I have the same error. I think Impala is not so Apache, but a private software, so we cannot deploy Impala without CDP components.
