I want to access Cloudera Hadoop setup (HIVE + Impala) from Mac Book Pro OS X 10.8.4.
We have Cloudera CDH-4.3.0 installed on Linux servers. I have extracted CDH-4.2.0 tarball to my Mac Book Pro.
I have set proper configuration and Kerberos credentials so that HIVE shell starts up.
However when I do 'show databases' command it gives following error:
> show databases;
Failed with exception java.io.IOException:java.io.IOException: Can't get Master Kerberos principal for use as renewer
The error is related to TokenCache.
When I searched for error, it seems following method 'obtainTokensForNamenodesInternal' throws this error when it tries to get a delegation token for specific FS and fails.
On client side I don't see any error in HIVE shell logs.
Any help or pointers for resolving this error would be highly appreciated.
Did you run hive with the command "sudo -u hive hive -hiveconf hive.root.logger=INFO,console" ?
Maybe your hive user does not opened，edit the /etc/passwd file，it will be ok.
