    Using HDPSandbox v2.1 (Hadoop 2.40). Can you please show me the command to get the version if HCatalog?

    In the HCatalog manual https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/Hive/HCatalog+StorageFormats
    [quote]Hive and HCatalog (version 0.4 and later) share the same storage abstractions, and thus, you can read from and write to HCatalog tables from within Hive, and vice versa. However, for HCatalog versions 0.4 and 0.5 Hive does not know where to find the HCatalog jar by default, … [/quote]

    It seems like Hive is sensitive to the version of HCatalog. I would like to check that HCatalog version.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    As mentioned in that document “After version 0.5, HCatalog is part of the Hive distribution and you do not have to add the HCatalog jar to HIVE_AUX_JARS_PATH.”

    As it is part of hive, there is no separate hcatalog version (it is same as hive version).
