    Hi John,

    Can you try starting hiveserver on port 10000? Assumed that the ODBJ driver is configured on port 10000
    #hive –service hiveserver –hiveconf HIVE_PORT=10000 (there are two dashes before word service)



    Hi Yi
    thanks for your reply. Your suggestion was useful in starting your server-side Hive ODBC interface. I can use this to connect from Windows as explained in your doc but i cannot find anything on how to connect from my macbook using your ODBC driver you supply.

    When i run the MAC OSX ODBC administrator the Hive Driver (i succesfully installed from your downloads, see prev post ) is not listed. I can’t see it in Excel for Mac OS X either. How can I use the Mac driver from my MacBook laptop?

    Thanks again, John


    Hi John,

    It would appear that we have a glaring hole in our documentation. I’ll try to hunt this information down and give you a link.
