Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-1428) ALTER TABLE ADD PARTITION fails with a remote Thirft metastore
Date Thu, 01 Jul 2010 20:21:50 GMT


Ashish Thusoo commented on HIVE-1428:

Is your question the fact that build.dir is an empty string? build.dir gets defined in build-common.xml
which inturn picks properties from The build.xml in the metastore directory
includes build-common.xml so it should be getting build.dir. How are you running this test?

commands will fail with an error similar to the following:

> This is due to a check that tries to retrieve the partition to see if it exists. If it
does not, an attempt is made to pass a null value from the metastore. Since thrift does not
support null return values, an exception is thrown.
