    Following the tutorial, open up query editor and try to execute a simple query “Select * from nyse_stocks”. I receive following error: “Error occurred executing hive query: Unknown exception.”. Here is the log:

    Figured it out. The tutorial syntax is apparently wrong. I went to HCatalog and browsed data which reveals the query in a separate tab.

    This is the proper syntax: SELECT * FROM default.nyse_stock. Notice that database.table_name are enclosed in single quotation marks. Not as surprised about tutorial (we all make mistakes), but error handling in Beeswax for simple syntax is surprisingly sub-par.

    SELECT * FROM 'default.nyse_stock'
