Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-3819) Creating a table on Hive without Hadoop daemons running returns a misleading error

---------------------------------

             Summary: Creating a table on Hive without Hadoop daemons running returns a misleading
error
                 Key: HIVE-3819
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-3819
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: CLI, Metastore
            Reporter: Mark Grover


I was running hive without running the underlying hadoop daemon's running. Hadoop was configured
to run in pseudo-distributed mode. However, when I tried to create a hive table, I got this
rather misleading error:
{code}
FAILED: Error in metadata: java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to instantiate org.apache.hadoop.hive.metastore.HiveMetaStoreClient
FAILED: Execution Error, return code 1 from org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.DDLTask
{code}

We should look into making this error message less misleading (more about hadoop daemons not
running instead of metastore client not being instantiable).
