hdp 3.0.1 upgrade from 2.6.3 pre-requisite


The pre upgrade tool is reporting error

requires Hive 2.x. Actual: 1.2.1000

I have Hive Interactive enabled and confirms to this thread

I don't have ACID tables in Hive.

Is it OK if I go ahead with version upgrade from Ambari without running pre-upgrade tool? Will it upgrade Hive?

Kindly let me know



Since we did not have ACID tables, it worked without pre-upgrade tool.

I am also facing the same issue is there any solution for it, or we can ignore this exception.

I have upgraded a database MariaDB from 5.6 to 10.2 and Ambari to 2.7.3.
Getting an error while running the hive pre-upgrade check.
