Unable to connect Sandbox to Tableau or ODBC drivers

  • #55727

    Hello all,

    Being new to Hadoop, I recently installed the Hortonworks Sandbox on my Windows 7 Premium 64bit machine. However, even after following the tutorials for Tableau, Excel and ODBC, I am unable to connect. Any help would be appreciated!

    I have tried to be as detailed with my computing environment as possible:

    Virtual Box + Hortonworks Sandbox (latest)
    Able to connect with browser on, nyse_stocks table created and registered with HCAT, Hive queries on nyse_stocks successful.
    Virtual OS: Red Hat 64bit
    Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
    Firewall: OFF
    ODBC: Both, 32bit and 64bit installed
    RAM: 1800MB allocated to Virtualbox. I currently only have 4GB on my laptop and am currently awaiting for my 2nd 4GB stick to arrive. The system is a little sluggish but my RAM should arrive soon…

    1. Virtual Box Preference:
    NATNetwork CIDR: (default settings, with NAT enabled); no port forwarding set
    Host Only:
    Adapter: Mask:
    DHCP: Mask: Bounds
    2. Sandbox Settings:
    Adapter 1: NAT enabled
    Adapter 2: Host only adapter

    3. ~ifconfig results:

    1.Testing the 64 bit ODBC connection from Administrative Tools:
    Port: 10000 (also tried 8000, 8888)
    Database default, Hive Server 2, Username: hue (no password)
    Driver Version: V1.4.5.1005 Running connectivity tests…
    Attempting connection Failed to establish connection
    SQLSTATE: HY000[Hortonworks][HiveODBC] (34) Error from Hive: connect() failed: errno = 10060.

    2.Testing the 32 bit ODBC and attempting to connect with Tableau:

    ODBC Settings:
    Server Type: Hive Server 2
    Mechanism: User Name
    Username: sandbox

    Tableau Settings:
    Using Hortonworks Hive
    Server Name: tried and
    Authentication: User Name (sandbox)
    Unable to connect to the ODBC Data Source. Check that the necessary drivers are installed and that the connection properties are valid.
    [Hortonworks][HiveODBC] (34) Error from Hive: connect() failed: errno = 10060.
    Unable to connect to the server “”. Check that the server is running and that you have access privileges to the requested database.

    Not sure what happened but so far:

    1. 64bit Hortonworks Hive ODBC test connection in ODBC Data Source Administrator System DSN tests connects successfully with the following :
    Port: 10000
    Hive Server 2
    Username: hue
    No Password

    2. Tableau initially connects to Sandbox with the following info:
    Hortonworks Hadoop Hive
    Server Name: Port: 10000
    Authentication: User Name: sandbox

    However after connecting to the default schema and choosing a table, I get the following error:
    [Hortonworks][HiveODBC] (35) Error from Hive: error code: ‘40000’ error message: ‘Error while compiling statement: FAILED: HiveAccessControlException Permission denied. Principal [name=sandbox, type=USER] does not have following privileges on Object [type=TABLE_OR_VIEW, name=default.nyse_stocks] : [SELECT]’.



    Execute this code in Beeswax/Hive:

    grant SELECT on table <table name> to user hue and
    grant SELECT on table <table name> to user sandbox

    Thanks Jason for sharing these queries and their resolutions.
