ODBC connection error 10060

  • #54735
    Tom Littlejohn


    I have been struggling with this for a while. I assume it is a network setup issue on the virtual machine, but haven’t been able to figure it out.

    Host: Windows 8 laptop
    VM: VirtualBox, Hortonworks Sandbox

    VirtualBox Network Settings:
    Host-only Adapter:,
    DHCP Server:,,,

    Virtual Machine Network Settings:
    Adapter 1: NAT
    Adapter 2: Host-only Adapter

    After Virtual Machine startup, eth1 settings:
    inet addr:

    ODBC Driver settings (32-bit Windows):
    Port: 10000
    Database: default
    Hive Server Type: Hive Server 2
    Auth/Mechanism: User Name
    User Name: sandbox

    Results of ODBC Test:
    Driver Version: V1.3.19.0013
    Running connectivity tests…

    Attempting connection
    Failed to establish connection
    SQLSTATE: HY000[Hortonworks][HiveODBC]
    (34) Error from Hive: connect() failed: errno = 10060

    Thanks for your help,

    Hi Tom,
    Can you verify the hiveserver2 port where the hiveserver2 process is running?


    Tom Littlejohn

    hive.server2.thrift.http.path cliservice
    hive.server2.thrift.http.port 10001
    hive.server2.thrift.max.worker.threads 500
    hive.server2.thrift.min.worker.threads 5
    hive.server2.thrift.port 10000


    Try to change the Port to 10001 and let us know if it works.

    Hello. I changed the Port in the ODBC driver setup to 10001, but I still get the same error.

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks for your help!

    I had problems setting up JDBC with Sandbox and it was because it “wasn’t enough” just to restart stale Hive configs. I restarted the entire Sandbox and JDBC using http/cliservice/port10001 then worked.
