Pls note -

The namenode was in Safe mode, hence i removed the safe mode.

Apart from this, no other changes done.

@Neeraj Sabharwal @Laurent Edel

for now, i've changed the execution engine to Map Reduce - to remove the problem,,

but the getting the following error on accessing the Hive View.

This error usually indicates you have defined aux jars in hive-site.xml. For now (HDP 2.5 and below), aux jars need to be set in the client rather than as a server-side property when using Hive on Tez. There is an improvement request tracking this.
