Excuse my ignorance as im a little new to Hive. What do you mean by restart the Hive Server? I am using the Hive Interactive shell for my work. So i start the shell after modifying the config variable. Which server do i need to restart?
Did you restart the hive server after modifying the hive-site.xml settings?
I think you need to restart the server to pick up the latest settings in the config file.
I build custom UDFS for hive and they seem to work fine when i explicitly register the jars using the "add jar <jarname>" command or put in in the environment variable "HIVE_AUX_JARS_PATH". But if i add it as a configuration variable in the hive-site.xml file and try to register the function using "create temporary function <functionname> as 'funciton' ", it cannot find the jar. Any idea whats going on here?
Here is the snippet from hive-site.xml:
~/Documents/workspace/Hive_0_7_1/build/dist/conf$grep aux hive-site.xml
