Are you logged in using hive specific user or as root user.

/tmp/hive/hive.log file may be created once root user and it can’t be updated by any other
user so  it says permission denied.

Thanks & Regards,
Rinku Garg

Good morning all, I have another issue this morning. This time with Hive. Hive was working
before I restarted the server. My metastore is MySQL on the same server. See error below;
