I have installed the latest CDH (CDH5.1.1)
Iplala services are running on the cluster.
But when i try to run impala-shell command i get the following error:
Starting Impala Shell without Kerberos authentication
Error connecting: TTransportException, Could not connect to hdp005-2:21000
Welcome to the Impala shell. Press TAB twice to see a list of available commands.

The port 21000 is not used by any other service on the server.
Please let me know if i have to check some other settings
Is impalad running on the same node where you're running the shell? By default it will try to connect to localhost:21000. If you're on an edge node you'll need to connect to a datanode by running connect <hostname> in the shell.
