Did an almost clean install of MapR 6.0 (I believe the mySQL database already existed.)
I have two issues....
1) The Hive metastore tables that control roles/permissions/etc ... are empty. Need to find either SQL scripts to create admin permissions for users or output of table dumps so I can piece together the relationships.
2) I can connect to Hive via the hive shell if I am user mapr or root. But as myself, I end up getting hit with the following error:
2018-01-01T11:49:46,444 INFO [main] thrift.HadoopThriftAuthBridge25Sasl: Hive is configured for user authentication:
2018-01-01T11:49:46,446 ERROR [main] hive.metastore: Couldn't create client transport
java.io.IOException: Unsupported authentication method: CUSTOM
Now... the Mapr docs say that the user authentication already supports SASL and CUSTOM.
I didn't set up the hive-site.xml and its missing anything surrounding authentication.
So my questions are:
1) What is causing hive to look for a CUSTOM authentication method.
2) What's the best way to fix this?
I'm running community edition on a single node cluster. No idea why this happened.
