Check SERDE Definitions and Availability

Incorrect SERDE definitions and a reference to a SERDE that does not exist can cause upgrade problems. If you do not expedite the Hive upgrade process, you need to manually check and correct SERDE definitions.

  1. Check SERDE definitions for correctness and check for SERDE availability.
  2. Correct any problems found as follows:
    • Remove the table having the problematic SERDE.
    • Ensure the SERDE is available during the upgrade, so the table can be evaluated.
