Re: hive insert query is failing with following exception

remove property ‘org.apache.atlas.hive.hook.HiveHook’ from ‘hive.exec.post.hooks’ in hive-site.xml, and restart all affected components

I got this problem once, and it was because the Hive-client component was not installed on the server I was running hive command from.

After installing Atlas and the datanodes in the cluster do not have the log path for hive you get the below stack:

To resolve this do the following, i.e. create the path for the hive process to dump log files in the cluster:

pdsh -g allhosts 'mkdir -p /var/hadoop/log/hive/ ; chmod 1777 /var/hadoop/log/hive/ '

# verify

pdsh -g allhosts 'stat -c"%a %U:%G %N" /var/hadoop/log/hive/ ' | dshbak -c
