HCatalog in Hive 0.11.0 problem writing from Pig using the HCatStorer
I'm having trouble getting HCatalog to write to a Hive table using Pig
(Hive 0.11 running on Hadoop 2.0.0-cdh4.1.2 and Pig 0.10.0-cdh4.1.2).

Getting this error when using HCatStorer from Pig ... my script is:

sigs_in = load 'signals' using org.apache.hcatalog.pig.HCatLoader();
sigs = filter sigs_in by datetime_partition == '2013-10-07_0000';
STORE sigs INTO 'signals_orc' USING org.apache.hcatalog.pig.HCatStorer();

Reads are working so I know I'm pretty close. Any ideas what might cause
this issue? I verified the table exists and the HDFS directory has the
proper permissions. Here's the DDL I used to create the table (most fields
not shown):

create external table signals_orc (
 signal_id string,
 ...
) partitioned by (datetime_partition string)
stored as ORC
location '/user/hive/external/signals_orc'
tblproperties ("orc.compress"="snappy");

Thanks.
