I wanted to explicitly connect to a hiveserver by specifying -u but that didn't work because it was not running/etc...
The strange thing is that somehow the default connection is activated...and tried
The possible "hazard" here is that if someone specifies -u $MY_DEV_HS2 -f recreate_db.sql to run some sql script...beeline may connect somewhere else and run the commands there - which might have serious consequences.... (in the above case having default as production might be interesting)
beeline -u jdbc:hive2:SLF4J: Class path contains multiple SLF4J bindings.
