Subject Re: Create table as select fails with error "Error in metadata: org.apache.thrift.TApplicationException"

If your success rate is increased by increasing hive.metastore.connect.retries, mostly likely
your Thrift server is too busy to get connected. Can you check your /tmp/<userid>/hive.log
in your local machine and see if exception related to metastore?
