Hue

— Running a Hive Beeswax metastore on the same host as the Hue server will result in Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL) authentication failures on a Kerberos-enabled cluster

Bug: None

Severity: Medium

Resolution: None; use workaround

Workaround: The simple workaround is to run the metastore server remotely on a different host and make sure all Hive and Hue configurations properly refer to it. A more complex workaround is to adjust network configurations to ensure that reverse DNS properly resolves the host's address to its fully qualified-domain name (FQDN) rather than localhost.

— Hue does not communicate with servers such as Impala or HiveServer2 when SSL is enabled

Bug: HUE-1749

Severity: Medium

Workaround: None.

— The Pig shell does not work when NameNode uses a wildcard address

The Pig shell does not work from Hue if you use a wildcard for the NameNode's RPC or HTTP bind address. For example, dfs.namenode.http-address must be a real, routable address and port, not 0.0.0.0.<port>.

Bug: HUE-1060

Severity: Medium

Resolution: None; use workaround

Workaround: Use real, routable address and port, not 0.0.0.0.<port>, for the NameNode; or use the Pig application directly, rather than from Hue.
