@Mangesh Berde

Please verify if the folder /etc/hadoop/conf exists on the machine where Hive services are configured. Also, share the complete stack of the error.

Please try to start each service individually and verify the particular log files.

Can you please refer below details and try to modify symlink for /etc/hadoop/conf to /etc/hadoop/<version>/0

[root@sandbox ~]# ls -lrt /etc/hadoop/|grep conf
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2016-03-14 14:08 conf.backup
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   35 2016-03-14 14:09 conf -> /usr/hdp/current/hadoop-client/conf


[root@sandbox ~]# ls -rlt /usr/hdp/current/hadoop-client/|grep conf
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root        25 2016-11-01 15:02 conf -> /etc/hadoop/2.4.0.0-169/0


[root@sandbox ~]# cd /etc/hadoop/conf
[root@sandbox conf]# pwd -P
