Im working with the following manual to prepare a “1 master / 2 slaves” cluster:
All of the base stuff is installed, plus Pig. No other “extras”.
While following the Hive installation, I noted that Hive Server2 is not getting started, as “netstat -anlp | grep 10000″ returns nothing.
I was carefull to leave “hive.metastore.uris” parameter empty.
Another thing that I noted: folder /var/run/hive does not contain any pids.
But I can connect to the hive Metastore without a problem.
