Sandbox 1.3RC6 Virtualbox, Hiveserver2 failed to start

  • #32501
    Tri Nguyen

    Using HDP Sandbox 1.3 RC6, Virtualbox 4.2.14 on host Xubuntu 13.04 x64
    Each time the VM is shutdown, at the next restart, the Hiverserver2 failed to start properly:

    (Check Hive Metastore running)
    netstat -nl | grep 9083

    (Check Hive Thrift Server running)
    netstat -nl | grep 10000

    When the VM started, the error messages on the init sequence was:
    Starting Hiveserver2
    env: /tmp/ No such file or directory
    Starting Hcat server
    env: /tmp/ No such file or directory

    For now the workaround I have found is to copy back these missing files *.sh from /var/lib/ambari-agent/puppet/modules/hdp-hive/files/ and reboot the VM.

    Can you please confirm the issue and hopefully can you please suggest a fix?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Tri,

    The Sandbox I am running does not run into this issue. Are the files there in /tmp when you see this issue?
    It looks like the /tmp is being emptied, you could move these into roots home directory and update the startup scripts and see if that helps.
