Subject: NullPointerException when dropping database backed by S3

Hi All,

I have a database backed by an s3 bucket. When I try to drop that database, I get a NullPointerException:

hive> drop database services_csvs cascade;

FAILED: Execution Error, return code 1 from org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.DDLTask. MetaException(message:java.lang.NullPointerException)

hive> describe database services_csvs;


services_csvs s3a://ID:SECRETWITHOUTSLASHES@services-csvs/mtustin USER

→ hive --version

WARNING: Use "yarn jar" to launch YARN applications.


Subversion git://c66-slave-20176e25-2/grid/0/jenkins/workspace/HDP-build-centos6/bigtop/build/hive/rpm/BUILD/hive-
-r efb067075854961dfa41165d5802a62ae334a2db
