I have followed the steps as given in Hortonworks HIVE ODBC Driver user guide.I am using 10000 as port and default database as database, selected HIVE SERVER 1 as HIVE SERVER TYPE.

    Hi Manish,
    Thanks for the feedback. What did you change on your end to make it work? Was it a network issue where you couldn’t hit the hiveserver2?

    I’m having trouble accessing Hive from ODBC with Hdp2. The hive.server.servermode setting doesn’t seem to exist anymore!

    Hi Toby,

    Can you please share what error you are getting and which Hive Server version you are trying to connect to? Can you please also share your ODBC settings?

    Hi Robert,

    Actually I was trying to configure HIVE ODBC Server on Windows Server where I have installed HDP. But when I have installed and configure HIVE ODBC on windows 8 or Windows 7 and the tried to connect it to HDP server, It started working. Successfully connected to HDP server from Windows 8 or 7, I have successfully imported HDP data to Excel.

    But I am anxious to know how to connect to HIVE ODBC to Windows sever.



    Hi Manish,

    What error is being thrown from the ODBC driver on Windows Server? Are you using the correct driver (32 bit / 64 bit)
    As you can see the driver works correctly on Windows 7 & 8, it is likely due to the OS causing the issue (incompatible drivers etc)
    In the meantime I will check to see if the driver has been certified with Windows Server.
