Which version r u using ?
I think from 0.9+ onwards its best to use service to stop and start and NOT hive
sudo service hive-metastore stop
sudo service hive-server stop
sudo service hive-metastore start
sudo service hive-server start
Couple of general things that might help
1. Use linux screens : then u can start many screen sessions and u don't have to give the synch mode "&" of execution
Its very easy to manage several screen sessions and they keep running till your server restarts….and generally u can ssh to some jumhost and create your screen sessions there
2. Run the following
pstree -pulac | less
U can possible search for hive or your username or root which was used to start the service…and kill the process
