Subject RE: Running a HiveClient with create external table HBase
Date Fri, 03 Dec 2010 09:18:40 GMT
I found answer for this issue. It was related to metastore_db.  Server and client were on
different metastore_db.

Subject: Running a HiveClient with create external table HBase

Currently I am facing random behavior while trying to create a java client for Hive hbase
Case: I am trying to create a hive table for existing HBase table. So i have started hiveserver
via  /hive -service hiveserver.     In logs I can see it is printing by my sql with "CREATE
EXTERNAL TABLE". But somehow that table is not getting created in Hive. Interesting point
is running the sql command from command line with Hive is running fine.

This behavior is random. Sometimes it shows me all created tables in Hive(when I use "SHOW

Does it have  something to do with 'metastore_db'?

Any idea?
