Fail to import data

    I have the latest of everything running on 3 separate machines. There’s no configuration issue when running the check from HUE and everything looks green from Ambari. When I try to import the data from HUE, the table schema is created but it does not import any data. I look @ Job Browser and there’s no error. Can anyone help point me to where I need to check?

    I found out that it works if I use Beeswax to create/import data but it fails with HCat. The weird thing is it is able to create the table schema but not to import the data. Not sure where to look for

    Hi Stanley,

    Could you let me know what the root cause for this was?
    Was it permissions or configuration?

    Hi Dave,

    It was the permission. The folder was owned by hdfs:hdfs but I logged in as hue. Once I created another account “hdfs” in hue, it works fine. It took me a while to figure out since the log I think was somewhere else. I think probably since I’m new with HDP, debugging the issue is a bit challenge. Like right now, I have an issue with Pig script got stuck in HUE but running successfully from grunt. Can’t find the error anywhere. From your professional experience, what’s the best way to debug in HDP?
