      Description

      If HIVE_OPTS were to be set, then the Hive Metatool fails on parsing the commandline arguments. This can happen, for example, if HIVE_AUX_JARS_PATH were to include the HCatalog jar.

      The result, then, is that it tries to execute the following:

      exec $HADOOP jar ${HIVE_LIB}/hive-cli-*.jar $CLASS $HIVE_OPTS "$@"
      

      which maps to:

      exec /usr/lib/hadoop/bin/hadoop jar /usr/lib/hive/lib/hive-cli-0.11.0.2.0.5.0-30.jar org.apache.hadoop.hive.metastore.tools.HiveMetaTool -hiveconf hive.aux.jars.path=file:///usr/lib/hcatalog/share/hcatalog/hcatalog-core.jar -listFSRoot
      

      Then Metatool chokes on seeing the "-hiveconf" parameter.
