Hive Web Interface service will not start

    Details

    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Resolved
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Won't Fix
    • Affects Version/s: CDH3b3
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: Hive
    • Labels:
      None
    • Environment:
      CentOS release 5.5

      Description

      In the /etc/rc.d/init.d/hive-hwi file that ships in the hadoop-hive-webinterface rpm it has the following assumptions:

      this script assumes that Hadoop and Hive were installed from RPM. To be
      specific, this script assumes thath:

      • the hadoop user exists
      • /usr/bin/hive exists
      • /usr/share/java contains ant.jar

      In the CDH3b3 system, there is no hadoop user, there is a hadoop group. I believe the fix in this circumstance is to have the hadoop-hive-webinterface rpm create a hive user and put it into the hadoop group and update the /etc/rc.d/init.d/hive-hwi script accordingly.
