Sandbox : cannot connect to Hive / Zookeeper with JDBC

Sandbox : cannot connect to Hive / Zookeeper with JDBC

New Contributor

Hello

I downloaded HDP-Sandbox (in an Oracle VirtualBox VM) a while ago, never used it much, and I’m now trying to access data from the outside world using Hive HDBC.

I use hive-jdbc 2.3.2 from apache, which I got from mvnrepository, with all the dependencies in the classpath

http://mvnrepository.com/artifact/org.apache.hive/hive-jdbc/2.3.2

Connection fails with a timeout, I guess it’s caused by a configuration error – even though I use my sandbox out of the… box.

My sandbox version

Sandbox information:
Created on: 25_10_2016_08_11_26 for
Hadoop stack version:  Hadoop 2.7.3.2.5.0.0-1245
Ambari Version: 2.4.0.0-1225
Ambari Hash: 59175b7aa1ddb74b85551c632e3ce42fed8f0c85
Ambari build:  Release : 1225
Java version:  1.8.0_111
OS Version:  CentOS release 6.8 (Final)

My VM screen

HDP 2.5

Hive Summary from the Ambari screen

Hive Metastore        Started No alerts
HiveServer2           Started No alerts
WebHCat Server        Started No alerts
Hive Client           1 Hive Client Installed
HiveServer2 JDBC URL  jdbc:hive2://sandbox.hortonworks.com:2181/;serviceDiscoveryMode=zooKeeper;zooKeeperNamespace=hiveserver2

Zookeeper Summary

ZooKeeper Server 	Started No alerts
ZooKeeper Client 	1 ZooKeeper Client Installed

The jdbc URL I use

jdbc:hive2://sandbox.hortonworks.com:2181/;serviceDiscoveryMode=zooKeeper;zooKeeperNamespace=hiveserver2

The message I get from my java Driver#connect(String url, Properties info)

Could not open client transport for any of the Server URI's in ZooKeeper: java.net.SocketTimeoutException: Read timed out

The message I get from Squirrel with the same URL

Unexpected Error occurred attempting to open an SQL connection.
class java.util.concurrent.TimeoutException: null

I’m stuck, any help would be appreciated very much!

Thanks !

@Luc Chapon

Heya, check out the "Hortonworks Data Platform Add-Ons" section on Hortonworks' download page for JDBC drivers and some docs. https://hortonworks.com/downloads/

Regarding your JDBC url: I would refer to the documentation for the best answer, but if you want to connect to Hive by querying Zookeeper, here's an excerpt from the docs:

jdbc:hive2://zk=192.168.0.1:2181/hiveserver2

Use this option to enable the Dynamic Service Discovery feature, which allows you to connect to Hive servers that are registered against a ZooKeeper service by connecting to the ZooKeeper service.

Thank you

I tried

jdbc:hive2://zk=myip:2181/hiveserver2

This gave me, as I feared, an “unknown host” error.

I use the Apache JDBC driver 2.3.2.

I also tried

jdbc:hive2://myip:2181/hiveserver2

That gave me (using Squirrel)

Unexpected Error occurred attempting to open an SQL connection.
class org.apache.thrift.transport.TTransportException: null

The url I use is the one given by Ambari in the Hive summary for my config. Why couldn’t I use it directly ?

jdbc:hive2://sandbox.hortonworks.com:2181/;serviceDiscoveryMode=zooKeeper;zooKeeperNamespace=hiveserver2

More info:

On the console, I get the following error while trying to connect:

ERROR Utils Unable to read HiveServer2 configs from ZooKeeper

I cant connect, I cant connect!

Two days spent googling and searching, and I cant connect to Hive using JDBC. I’m pretty sure it’s a configuration error, but I cant find where and what.

I putty’ed into the docker HDP Sandbox and tried to connect from there, but it failed too!

Port 2181 seems to be listening on ipv6 only, is that right?

Beelining, using the very jdbc URL Ambari grives me, fails…

Can anyone help me please?

Try using quotes around JDBC URL:

beeline -u 'jdbc:hive2://sandbox.hortonworks.com:2181/;serviceDiscoveryMode=zooKeeper;zooKeeperNamespace=hiveserver2'

Hi @gdelon, that worked, thanks !

It’s weird though, CentOS shell seems to do something with the unquoted string, I can’t see what.

It also works if you quote only the semi-colon part of the url. Semi-colon is the culprit. Ok :)

beeline -u jdbc:hive2://sandbox.hortonworks.com:2181/';serviceDiscoveryMode=zooKeeper;zooKeeperNamespace=hiveserver2'

So it works from within the docker inside the VM. So at least the configuration is correct for this case.

Now how could the same jdbc url work from outside that box ?

Any clue anyone ?

Thanks
