Hi Team, I'm getting the below error when I'm using JDBC Lookup to Hive Database.

Error: JDBC_00 - Cannot connect to specified database: com.streamsets.pipeline.api.StageException: JDBC_06 - Failed to initialize connection pool: com.zaxxer.hikari.pool.PoolInitializationException: Exception during pool initialization: [Cloudera][HiveJDBCDriver](500164) Error initialized or created transport for authentication: [Cloudera][HiveJDBCDriver](500169) Unable to connect to server: Peer indicated failure: GSS initiate failed.

I have added all the jars provided by the Cloudera Driver.

JDBC Connection String : jdbc:hive2://hostname:10000/dbname;AuthMech=1;KrbRealm=*.COM;;KrbServiceName=hive

Please help me out!!!

Have you enabled Kerberos in SDC itself by configuring the kerberos related properties in

Yes, I have enabled the kerberos properties in the cloudera manager. SDC is able to read/write into HDFS, but when I am trying to lookup from Hive, I am getting the above error.

I'm not a Kerberos expert by any means, but I'm pretty sure KrbHostFQDN needs to be the actual fully qualified domain name of the host that HiveServer 2 is running on. Can you try that?

I am using the fully qualified domain name, but still having the same problem. Able to connect to impala using LDAP + SSL connection string.
