"org.apache.hadoop.hive.metastore.HiveMetaException: Failed to get schema version" error

Expert Contributor

Hi,

I am unable to start the "Hive Metastore" service through Apache Server . I keep getting the following error. The materials I found on the internet suggest that it could be due to attempt to get schema information with older metastore. But, I used Ambari to install the cluster and all the sevices, so I am sure all the metastore should have been up to date. I have also observed that the service "HiveServer2" is unstable. When I start the service, it starts and shown as green in the dashboard. But after some time, it stops automatically. I do not know the reason why. When I started writing this post, it was green. After I finished writing the post, it was red so I restarted it.

I am adding some more information. The "MySQL server" service is always in red and the status is always "install failed" . I found out through this forum that, since I had installed MySQL manually, during the first step of Ambari Installation, this service cannot be installed. Is this causing the issue?. Here is the error.

Metastore connection URL: jdbc:mysql://mycomputer.mydomain.com/hive?createDatabaseIfNotExist=true
Metastore Connection Driver : com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
Metastore connection User: hiveuser

Is it host or service? If it is add service then I am unable to select hive as it is already added.

If it host then sandbox is mentioned as in red color.. Please help

This looks a lot like there is an actual error in the SQL.

I finally got Hive installed. Instead of allowing Ambari to install MySQL, I installed it manually (remember to change the my.cnf to allow remote connections) and followed the directions for using an existing instance: https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/Ambari-2.5.1.0/bk_ambari-administration/content/using_hive...
