Issue connecting to Hive : "Failed to synchronize Hive metastore"

UserBird Dataiker, Alpha Tester Posts: 535 Dataiker

I installed Dataiku successfully on my VM and created the two hdfs connections required by the tutorial : "hdfs_root" & "hdfs_managed". However, I can't seem to connect to Hive Metastore when I synchronize the haiku_shirt_sales.csv that I imported under the hdfs_managed directory to create a corresponding metastore table in my hive warehouse (a directory for the hive metastore isn't even created). I verified the accesses of the different directories, tried several times on different csv files (i respected the formats supported by Hive), created Hive databases, changed the hdfs connections toward the "/user/hive/warehouse" implemented by Cloudera but still, I cannot seem to identify the root of the problem. Could you help me out plz ?

Kind regards,

    It looks like you are running on CDH 5.7

    DSS does not yet support this version (it supports CDH 5.3 to 5.6). We plan to release an update with CDH 5.7 support this week.
