Error: We get the below error sometimes while trying the hive commands or while using the database present in the repository
We can try below resolution:
We need to close all the running instance of Hive shell (if any) as well as terminals also.
execute sudo jps
We will see a process with the name RunJar. note down its process id. Lets say it is 5242
Then execute sudo kill 5242
Now execute sudo hive
Please find the screenshot for the same.
After following the above steps we can start the hive shell or can use any of the database present in the repository.
