It is expected, you now have to run SchemaTool manually, as the error message indicates.

Some trouble I met:

1. downloaded source and build Hive with -Pdist.
2. try to run Hive CLI and get the following error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.RuntimeException: Hive metastore database is not initialized.
Please use schematool (e.g. ./schematool -initSchema -dbType ...) to create the schema. If
needed, don't forget to include the option to auto-create the underlying database in your
JDBC connection string (e.g. ?createDatabaseIfNotExist=true for mysql)

Is this expected? This used to work out of box with embedded metastore created automatcially.
