Hive / HCatalog Forum

HBase bulk import through Hive in HDP 2.0

  • #45528

    Trying to do HBase bulk import following

    I updated versions/conf properties to make it work with HDP2, but finally I’m stuck with a NPE in reducers of the final MR job. I tracked it down to Hadoop23Shims and put a detailed comment on what’s happening in HIVE-4216 which describes the same issue.

    We’re using Sandbox 2.0 and HDP 2.0. Is it possible to find Hive 0.12 sources used to create Sandbox/HDP distro to patch it, verify the fix and use it as a temporary solution until the fix is included in next version of HDP?

    Hi Andrey,

    Have you tried to use Pig and HBase as a workaround? If the table is stored in HCatalog, it will be accessible through Pig. As far as patching, What you are suggesting may be possible but it is not supported.
