Subject ORC tables failing after upgrading from 0.14 to 2.1.1
Date Sat, 06 May 2017 00:28:38 GMT
Our schema is nested with top level having 5 struct types.  When we try to
query these structs we get the following back

*ORC does not support type conversion from file type string (1) to reader
type array<string> (1)*

Walking through hive in a debugger I see that schema evolution sees the
correct file type (which matches schema), but the reader type looks like
the following


minified file type


So what I see is that schema evolution is trying to compare id to
output.provider (or really _col0) which will fail since they don't match.

query is

select output.provider from table;

hive version is 2.1.1

Any idea whats going on?
