Subject Re: Getting Started with Hive 0.13.1 ClassNotFound

hcat_server is essentially same has hive metastore, it is there for
historical reasons (time to remove it, in my opinion). As metastore
command is more commonly used, hcat_server command might have new bugs
that have gone unnoticed because of its disuse.

You can start hive-metastore by using 'hive --service metastore'
