Cannot drop / recreate table on local ADLA Database


  • Hi all,

    After some time troubleshooting, I realized that I can only drop a local table if I drop and recreate the entire Database First.

    - Right click delete on Data Lake Analytics -> (local) -> Databases -> Tables -> MyTable doesn't do anything.

    - DROP TABLE IF EXISTS ... MyTable returns "Execution failed with error 'MetaDataExecutor returned with '-3''"

    Is this expected ??

    My apologies for the late reply but I am just catching up after a vacation.

    DROP TABLE IF EXISTS should work and works for me. Are you in the right database and schema context?

    Are you running the job locally or against a cluster?

    Can you paste the full error message you are getting?
