    Do you happen to setting hive password with any special chars?

    Bruno Sarlandie

    No, just a very simple password like “hivepwd”.
    I removed the “!p” at the end of the password field in the command, and it was ok.
    Many problem identical (UnicodeDecodeError) on module when the logger output the command (info log).
    The linux server configuration (Centos 6) is in french fr_FR.

    Jeff Sposetti

    Thanks for the follow-up info. Can you post the contents of this file?

    $ more /etc/sysconfig/i18n

    And also the output of this command?

    $ locale

    Vincent Gromakowski

    Same error here on French Centos 6.5
    I didn’t use any special character in Hive

    Ben Han

    It s probably due to locales problems when service mysqls stop is called. Here in France it returns “specials” characters Arrêt
    I managed to pass the step by adding LANG=C to the command in /var/lib/ambari-agent/cache/stacks/HDP/2.0.6/services/HIVE/package/scripts/”, line 35
    Don’t know how to clean solve the problem for the moment.
