WebHCat service not running / failed to start - in QuickStart VM CDH 5.8 (VMWare)

WebHCat service not running / failed to start - in QuickStart VM CDH 5.8 (VMWare)

New Contributor

I've downloaded the CDH 5.8 quick start VM and booted it and found out that the WebHCat service is not running and has status failed ... looking at the configuration settings it looks like it is either misconfigured or not configured at all.

I would like to test launching pig and hive scripts via the WebHCat service, but there seems to be a void in your installation/configuration documentation on that subject and setting up the WebHCat service in general. Are there any guides on how to get it running?
