    I have installed hadoop- on Ubuntu-12.04 and also installed additional components like hbase-, pig-, hive- I have installed and configured mysql-5.5 and create user and password for login. Create database and tables inside it using mysql shell. When I am trying to use access same tables using hive shell, it gives me below error:

    hive> show tables;
    FAILED: Execution Error, return code 1 from org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.DDLTask. java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to instantiate org.apache.hadoop.hive.metastore.HiveMetaStoreClient.

    I am just about to start something similar, but with Ubuntu 14.04 server. Did you solve your problems?
