Creating Universe on top of Hadoop Hive

Dear All,

I am very new to this scenario, my client is having impala tables in hadoop hive 5.2. I need to connect Business Objects universe to create the schema.

My Questions are:

1. Prerequisite to proceed.

2. Can we use UDT to create the universe ? I know we can use IDT but i am more concerned on UDT.

3. I have Hadoop has a VMWare are Business objects 4.1 sp3 both are in a single machine, what else is required to connect. Do i need any drivers as a middle-ware if so where can i get it and how to deploy it.

Any help is appreciated,

      Hi , could you please share the solution?

      we got similar requirement. Client tools version(BI 4.1 SP4 ) and Hadoop HiveServer 2 . We need to create a universe(.unx) on Hadoop Hive (either on-prem or AWS cluster).

      I downloaded the Cloudera driver,created system DSN locally

      Now, trying to use "Cloudera Impala Simba driver" that comes with BI BO SP4 to connect to Hiveserver2.

      forums, I found that hiveserver2 is supported only using Apache Hadoop Hive 0.13(source files)...wondering, if I have to install latest SP(BO) to test this..?

      Thanks for help!
