I have seen numerous posts about this and everyone says it should be fixed in later versions or to restart Ambari-Server and Hive. That temporarily fixes the issue, but the error comes back every couple days. My cluster does not have Kerberos enabled. It does seem that the issue occurs when trying to connect to Hive using JDBC whether through beeline or an external studio software. Those connections fail and then Hive View fails as well.
@Tony Hake Which verson of Ambari are you using? This should be fixed in Ambari 2.4.0. If you're still seeing it then it could be indicative of a configuration problem, for instance issues with Kerberos if you have it enabled.
