Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 4.6.0 to 4.7.0 [Release 4.6 to 4.7]
Linux x86-64

Symptoms

On BDA 4.6/CDH 5.8 the Impala like command produces different results each time the like command is used.
This happens even after issuing "invalidate metadata" before running the query.

In Hive the same query consistently shows the same results.
