Hive ODBC Connect Error

  • #41517
    Bruce Roff

    Hi – as a novice user of Hadoop, I have been working my way through the tutorials (which have been a great intro for me). However, I’ve reached a problem on Tutorial 11, where I get the error “[Hortinworks][Hardy] (34) Error from Hive: connect() failed: Operation timed out.”

    I am on an OSX machine, and have followed the instructions to load and configure the Hortonworks ODBC drive. I get the error when I then try to run the test via Excel ( I get the same error when I use the iODBC Data Source Administrator).

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Hi Bruce,

    Are you using the correct driver – 64 bit?
    The ‘Operation timed out” suggests that you cannot connect to Hive on the port specified. Can you telnet to this port?
    What does your ODBC connection setup look like?
