Oozie workflow failed – hive-site.xml permission denied

Oozie workflow failed – hive-site.xml permission denied – If you have configured Hive action in your Oozie workflow and its getting failed as hive-site.xml permission denied then you are at correct place! 

Oozie workflow failed – hive-site.xml permission denied – This error can possibly occur with below mentioned scenarios:

 

Scenarios:

1. Your Oozie workflow contains hive action.

2. You have included <job-xml> inside hive action and given hive-site.xml path.

3. hive-site.xml is present under ${wf.application.path}/lib as well.

4. Your developers have also added hive-site.xml to Oozie sharelib, possibly at below location(s):

/user/oozie/sharelib/lib_<timestamp>/oozie/hive-site.xml
/user/oozie/sharelib/lib_<timestamp>/sqoop/hive-site.xml
/user/oozie/sharelib/lib_<timestamp>/hive/hive-site.xml

5. My simple hive workflow is failing with below error:

Oozie Launcher failed, finishing Hadoop job gracefully

 

Okay, How to fix this? 

Having multiple configuration files at different locations causes conflicts, Oozie might be trying to replace hive-site.xml from /etc/hive/conf/action-conf/hive/hive-site.xml copied to the local cache directory of nodemanager with hive-site.xml loaded from one of the location mentioned above

To resolve this conflict, We need to delete extra copies of hive-site.xml from all the above mentioned locations. Oozie uses hive-site.xml from /etc/oozie/conf/action-conf/hive/hive-site.xml :)

 

In short, remove hive-site.xml from below locations:

1. oozie sharelib (it was present at multiple locations in oozie sharelib)

2. from ${wf.application.path}/lib/ directory.

3. From workflow.xml (deleted <job-xml>)

 

With Oozie nothing is Easy 😉

 

Please comment if you have any feedback/questions/suggestions. Happy Hadooping!! :)
