Extending a node into a BDA 4.10/CDH 5.12.1 cluster fails on Step 8 "Starting Hadoop Services" when deploying the client configuration. Navigating in Cloudera Manager to: All Recent Commands, shows that the reason "Deploy Client Configuration" is failing is due to the hive client configuration failing to deploy on one node of the cluster.

For example

1. Navigating in Cloudera Manager (CM) to: All Recent Commands, shows:

Deploy Client Configuration Command
Status Failed Context hive <timestamp>
Deploy Client Configuration failed
Completed 1 of 1 step(s)

Generate and deploy client configuration
Timed out after 180000 ms. Completed only 18/29 steps. First failure: No response from host

2. /opt/oracle/BDAMammoth/bdaconfig/tmp/cm_cmd.out shows the failure to be for deploying the hive client configuration:

"id" : <###>,
"name" : "deployClientConfig",
"startTime" : "<timestamp>",
"endTime" : "<timestamp>",
"active" : false,
"success" : false,
"resultMessage" : "Deploy Client Configuration failed.",
"serviceRef" : {
"clusterName" : "cluster",
"serviceName" : "hive"

There are no related errors in /var/log/hive and all the nodes have the hive gateway role and look to be as expected. It is also the case that the node where "Deploy Client Configuration" fails for hive is heartbeating into the cluster.
