Trying to reinstall Hive but have metastore errors

Expert Contributor

Hi, I am trying to reinstall Hive because i have issue with the metastore. I don't have an ibdata file anymore. I have run the schema tool but i still get the error below. I use mysql on HDP 2.4.3.

bin/schematool -initSchema -dbType mysql
WARNING: Use "yarn jar" to launch YARN applications.
Metastore connection URL:        jdbc:mysql://host/hivedb?createDatabaseIfNotExist=true
Metastore Connection Driver :    com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
Metastore connection User:       hive_dev
org.apache.hadoop.hive.metastore.HiveMetaException: Failed to get schema version.
*** schemaTool failed ***

Re: Trying to reinstall Hive but have metastore errors

@Joshua Adeleke

It may be due to already existing the database. Share the output of schematool -initSchema -dbType mysql -dryRun and output of following query from Hive metastore db:

select * from "VERSION";

Re: Trying to reinstall Hive but have metastore errors

@Joshua Adeleke

Seems like some tables are present on hive_dev which is causing the issue. Try using clean database for metastore and try.

@Sindhu I used a clean database for the hive metastore and i still get the same error message (below). hive_dev is the user. @Benjamin Leonhardi @Sunile Manjee @Kuldeep Kulkarni
