Have you uploaded the latest patch?
I tried the patch attached in this Jira, and found:
1. In order to launch bin/beeline, I need to add the following jars to HADOOP_CLASSPATH in bin/ext/beeline.sh
2. The log file doesn't contain much info as the one for HiveCLI
in its log file, it only has the following lines:
[biadmin@bdvs1100 biadmin]$ cat hive.log
2015-02-13 06:53:50,145 INFO jdbc.Utils (Utils.java:parseURL(285)) - Supplied authorities: bdvs1100.svl.ibm.com:10000
2015-02-13 06:53:50,149 INFO jdbc.Utils (Utils.java:parseURL(372)) - Resolved authority: bdvs1100.svl.ibm.com:10000
2015-02-13 06:53:50,184 INFO jdbc.HiveConnection (HiveConnection.java:openTransport(191)) - Will try to open client transport with JDBC Uri: jdbc:hive2://18.104.22.168:10000
Are they known issue or worked as design?
