unable to start hive seeing below error SLF4J:Class path contains multiple SLF4J bindings.
SLF4J:Found binding in [jar:file:/usr/local/hadoop/share/hadoop/common/lib/slf4j-log4j12-1.7.5.jar!/org/slf4j/impl/StaticLoggerBinder.class] SLF4J:Found binding in [jar:file:/usr/local/hive/lib/slf4j-log4j12-1.6.1.jar!/org/slf4j/impl/StaticLoggerBinder.class] SLF4J:See http://www.slf4j.org/codes.html#multiple_bindings for an explanation. SLF4J:Actual binding is of type [org.slf4j.impl.Log4jLoggerFactory]
Because hive will automatically use slf4j-log4j jar file present in hadoop libs hence you should remove the "slf4j-log4j" jar from hive libs"
rm -f /usr/local/hive/lib/slf4j-log4j12-1.6.1.jar (OR Take a backup)
This issue should not be observed in "HDP 2.3.4" and later release though. So looks like your HDP version is prior to "HDP 2.3.4". According to the JIRAs this issue has been fixed on Hive 1.2.0 or higher.
So you should try HDP 2.3.4 that has Hive 1.2.1.
