Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-16942) INFORMATION_SCHEMA: schematool for setting it up is not idempotent
Date Sat, 24 Jun 2017 00:24:00 GMT


Gunther Hagleitner commented on HIVE-16942:

Patch fixes the problem described, but doesn't make the script idempotent. I'm not sure that's
desirable because a non-empty sys db could indicate a problem (existing db). It's fine to
drop an empty db though.

[~thejas] review please?

> If you run schematool to set up information schema, but the SYS database already exists,
here's what happens:
> {code}
> [vagrant@trunk apache-hive-3.0.0-SNAPSHOT-bin]$ schematool -metaDbType mysql -dbType
hive -initSchema -url jdbc:hive2://localhost:10000/default -driver org.apache.hive.jdbc.HiveDriver
> Metastore connection URL:	 jdbc:hive2://localhost:10000/default
> Metastore Connection Driver :	 org.apache.hive.jdbc.HiveDriver
> Metastore connection User:	 hive
> Starting metastore schema initialization to 3.0.0
> Initialization script hive-schema-3.0.0.hive.sql
> Error: org.apache.hive.service.cli.HiveSQLException: Error while processing statement:
FAILED: Execution Error, return code 1 from org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.DDLTask. Database
SYS already exists
> 	at org.apache.hive.service.cli.operation.Operation.toSQLException(
> 	at org.apache.hive.service.cli.operation.SQLOperation.runQuery(
> {code}
> Why is this a problem you ask?
> If you run schematool without hive.metastore.db.type set (or set to the wrong thing),
it will create the sys database but fail to create any of the tables within it. If you go
and fix hive.metastore.db.type and re-run you'll get this failure until you drop the SYS database
(which must be done as the hive user).
> Can the init script use "create database if not exists sys" rather than just "create
database sys"?
