Using hive from a remote machine to run queries
I have a simple hadoop cluster setup with a couple of machines (one master
running everything and one additional slave). I have hive configured with
the right hive-site.xml file pointing the fs.default.name and
mapred.job.tracker correctly to the master. When I run hive from the master
machine, hive connects fine and can schedule jobs fine. However, when I run
hive from a different machine, it cannot schedule jobs. It simply fails with
this error:

Job Submission failed with exception 'java.lang.NullPointerException(null)'
FAILED: Execution Error, return code 1 from

Is there any additional configuration or security involved with getting hive
to talk to my master and schedule jobs? Everything is running fine on the
master. I can access the web interfaces for namenode, jobtracker, etc. fine
from any other machine.
