I followed the instructions on Matt Massie's blog for setting up an Impala
cluster on EC2
The scripts run fine, but the impala-shell doesn't show any tables, while
the Hive CLI does. Others are also having this problem, so I suspect
something changed with the new Impala release. It's easily reproducible by
simply launching a new cluster using the instructions.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this issue? Even if I create
tables in Hive and run the Impala 'refresh' command it doesn't work.
