I tried to install hive on a raspberry pi 2. I installed Hive by uncompress zipped Hive package and configure $HADOOP_HOME and $HIVE_HOME manually under hduser user-group I created. When running hive, I got the following error message: hive

ERROR StatusLogger No log4j2 configuration file found. Using default configuration: logging only errors to the console.

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.RuntimeException: Hive metastore database is not initialized. Please use schematool (e.g. ./schematool -initSchema -dbType ...) to create the schema. If needed, don't forget to include the option to auto-create the underlying database in your JDBC connection string (e.g. ?createDatabaseIfNotExist=true for mysql)

So I ran the command suggested in the above error message: schematool -dbType derby -initSchema I got the error message:

Error: FUNCTION 'NUCLEUS_ASCII' already exists. (state=X0Y68,code=30000) org.apache.hadoop.hive.metastore.HiveMetaException: Schema initialization FAILED! Metastore state would be inconsistent !! * schemaTool failed *

It seems there aren't any helpful information when I try to google this error online. Any help or any explanation on how Hive works with Derby would be appreciated!

If the first thing you did after installing hive was run it, hive attempted to create/initialize the metastore_db, but apparently might not get it right. On that initial run, maybe that is why you saw the error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.RuntimeException: Hive metastore database is not initialized. Please use schematool (e.g. ./schematool -initSchema -dbType ...) to create the schema. If needed, don't forget to include the option to auto-create the underlying database in your JDBC connection string (e.g. ?createDatabaseIfNotExist=true for mysql)

Running hive, even though it fails, creates a metastore_db directory in the directory from which you execute hive:

ubuntu15-laptop: ~ $>ls -l |grep meta

drwxrwxr-x 5 testuser testuser 4096 Apr 14 12:44 metastore_db

So after that when you tried running:

ubuntu15-laptop: ~ $>schematool -initSchema -dbType derby

The metastore already existed, but not in complete form.

So, before you run hive for the first time, run

schematool -initSchema -dbType derby

If you have already executed hive and then you try running init Schema and it's failing, 

I would suggest you to try this approach:

mv metastore_db metastore_db.tmp

Then,  re-run:

schematool -initSchema -dbType derby

Finally, execute the hive again and it will work.
