Problems starting MetaStore and hive

  • #44887
    Petri Koski

    Hello, I just installed HDP 2.x using ambari. Now I am having problems starting hivemetastore and hiveserver2. Mysql shows green light, but hivemetastore and hiveserver2 shows red light. When I go to node where it should run I checked log from /var/log/hive/hive.log and it shows:

    javax.jdo.JDOFatalDataStoreException: Unable to open a test connection to the given database. JDBC url = jdbc, username = hive. Terminating connection pool. Original Exception: ——
    java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver found for jdbc

    That part url seems quite strange: Shouldn’t it be something like jdbc://localhost:3xxx something, now it only shows jdbc .. (default what Ambari gives ..)

    So, where might be problem ?
