Since Tuesday we have been getting on error from our metastore.

The following information failed to load:
The list of schemas in hive_metastore catalog

Followed by a rather large message We haven't made any changes to our platform at all and this appears to be coming up, some advice would be appreciated.

summary: Error in SQL statement: AnalysisException: org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.metadata.HiveException: java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to instantiate org.apache.hadoop.hive.metastore.HiveMetaStoreClient, data: com.databricks.backend.common.rpc.SparkDriverExceptions$SQLExecutionException: org.apache.spark.sql.AnalysisException: org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.metadata.HiveException: java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to instantiate org.apache.hadoop.hive.metastore.HiveMetaStoreClient at org.apache.spark.sql.hive.HiveExternalCatalog.$anonfun$withClient$2(HiveExternalCatalog.scala:170)
