Known Issues

Alternatively, if you are running Drill on CentOS or RHEL, you can issue the following command as a workaround to upgrade Drill:
    rpm -Uv --<old-package> <path/to/packages>/*.rpm

    See Upgrading Drill.


  • The hive storage plugin in Drill does not support reading the parquet timestamp type with the int64 logical type.
